Kimberly Quilt by GEQuiltDesigns

 The Kimberly Quilt was a recent quilt along by GEQuiltDesigns.com.  I pin basted it at our last church sew day and one of my quilty buds loved the fabric colors and the design,  so that was inspiration enough for me to finish it up quickly.

The fabric was a layer cake I bought thru Missouri Star, which sat here for a year or two. I quilted it with Superior So Fine thread color 402 and Bottom Line in the bobbin.  It has a puffy poly batting.   I quilted it in a continuous method of orange peels working independently in several directions.  I quilt on a Janome sit down machine. It finished at 52 x 64 .  I wish I made it a tad larger.  I had intended to hand stitch down the binding on this one.  ( I do all my quilt for kids quilt bindings by machine)  But I  made the magic binding for it and then realized it gets stitched down by machine.  And so it goes and is  already gifted.


Here is the backing which was a wide back.  I like backings that have several colors in them as they will compliment many quilt top styles and color plans.



I'm joining these linky parties this week.  Be sure to visit them to see what other creative quilters are sharing.

Christmas Tree Skirt - 26 inch diameter

 The wedges for this project were cut several years ago.  I was playing with a special short 10 degree wedge ruler and fabric which had an unusual print.  This was before ombre fabric was on the market.  When I was clearing thru a couple boxes of UFO projects, I stumbled on this batch of cut wedges and thought it would be quick to stitch up.  It is only 26 inches across and I thought the center opening was larger than it should be.

I quilted it on my Janome DSM and used the walking foot and a decorative stitch on the seams.  Bias binding finished it off and now it's looking for a new home.  I used a lovely dark wine colored print on the back and neglected to get a photo.


It's been several weeks since I've had something quilty to share.  I lost my summer to nasty pnemonia and have since been doing lots of piecing and some fmq.
