I finished by Hot August Night guild challenge piece this week. I am very pleased with myself. Originally I thought to take it to my local long arm quilter, but decided to go for quilting it myself. I was able to finish a very simple quilting of it in one afternoon. The quilt piece was copied from my Alex Anderson neutral quilt project. However, I doubled the size of the pattern directions. The challenge was a neutral quilt with one pop of color, thus the bright yellow blossoms.I have been working very hard to finish up the Alex Anderson neutral quilt over this past week. I have the third border on at last.I did modify the corners of the pattern. I had a really tough time with the pattern layout of the vines and blossom placements and finally decided to stop the vines. I am much happier with this adjustment of the layout over the pattern directions. This is the finished corners ending. I plan to round off the corners on the quilt once I have it quilted. I think that will make the corners softer and ease up the spacing as well.
This is our little dog Zoey. Early mornings the sun comes in from a small window over the fireplace and shines directly on the end of the sofa in our living room. The perfect place to take her after breakfast sun bath and nap.
Those big floppy flowers are so cute!!! Great job quilting your smaller version yourself! I need a patch like Zoey found!?!ReplyDelete
Your neutral projects are amazing, especially the larger one. But you did a great job quilting the small one!ReplyDelete

Love your neutral quilt and how you ended the vines before the corners. Good choice.ReplyDelete
Love your challenge quilt! Awesome that you quilted it yourself. The alteration you made to the Neutral quilt is perfect. Not sure how it was supposed to look, but I sure do love how you finished off the corners. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
Gosh this is SOOO pretty!! I really like how you stopped the vines too - it kind of gives it a completely finished look!ReplyDelete
