Yippie...several weeks before the end of the 2nd quarter Finish Along 2015 and I am DONE...for the moment!
Here is the 6th finish...the lovely Modern Buzzsaw from Amy Smart's book
Fabulously Fast Quilts. I really like this quilt for so many reasons mostly the fabrics. It's like a snuggle from my carpenter hubby....not that I can't have the real thing all the time!
This was machine quilted with straight lines an inch or so from the seams and I tied the center of each square with some navy perle cotton.
The back is a Kaffe that I have been hording until I could figure out what to do with it.
This is my new favorite way to finish the binding. Sew it on the back then bring it to the front and use perle cotton to stitch it down. Still hand stitching but takes a third of the time and adds a little extra detail. Fun and Fabulously Fast!:)
Kohlrabi is happening in the garden. That thing is five inches wide and ready to eat!
Amazing things also grow in our dirt/junk/rock pile. Wineberries should be ready for July 4th celebrating. This is just one of several patches in the yard!
There's the astronaut that joined the dinosaur league.
Medley of Jen is growing too. I have three large sections hand quilted...one more to go before joining them all together for the big reveal!
All the blocks came from Jen Kingwell's patterns and book. Very fun!
Received a lot of lovely birthday wishes this year....this one is my favorite.
It is sooooo me!:)
