Summer Sewing


I managed to get a few things sewn this summer.  The biggest project was this quilt that I made for a couple who got married in June. 

I started just after school got out and finished the first week in August (about 6 weeks).  I did a few other projects in between  but this one was my biggest effort.  I saw an inspiration quilt on the cover of Quilt magazine and chose a rainbow of fabric with Kona white.  

I pieced the back and used fabric markers to write a label.  I machine quilted it using my walking foot and straight line quilting.  The size of it was intimidating but it went pretty quickly once I got started.
