ANOTHER GOAL REACHED, ANOTHER QUILTER

This week I finished piecing my disappearing nine patch butterfly quilt.  After piecing the nine charms together, it looked very pretty.  I had second thoughts about cutting it up, but I knew I had tried to place the blocks with that in mind.  So out came the new rotating  cutting mat and I plunged right in.  It ended up with eighty blocks that mixed very nicely.
    For backing I had found a piece of about nine yards.  It is dark (indigo?) blue with tiny rose flowers.  But after searching through my stash, I could not find anything for binding.  Then in my batiks drawer I found the perfect raspberry piece.
    Looks great, doesn’t it?  So today I got over to Hobby Lobby and bought Warm and White batting, which was perfect in my rainbow quilt and was nice to work with.

    I also had the chance to get a friend started in quilting.  We worked together step by step every day.  She just finished making a table runner in her chosen color scheme and is now stitching on the orange binding.  I am sure that the clincher will be when she shows it at our group’s show and tell, with kind feedback from thirty or more of the nicest quilters anywhere.

  1. Your Raspberry Daydreams quilt looks terrific with those choices for the backing and binding! And your friend's table runner is elegant in it's simplicity that lets the fabrics shine. Good for you for introducing her to our passion.
