I may not be getting a lot of sewing done, but I have been on a mission sending tops out for quilting. This past week, I got three of them back, and am so pleased with the results.
Tumbler is pictured above, done in various Denyse Schmidt fabrics. That quilt has such a modern yet retro feel to it. I used Carrie Nelson's Crumbler acrylic template to cut out the pieces for this quilt.
Fig Tree reds and pinks are the fabrics in this quilt, which I think has a fresh feminine appeal. The pattern is also by Fig Tree, but I have no recollection of what it is called.
My quilter and I were referring to this one as "Modernish" when we discussed quilting designs for it. This one was a real sleeper for me. I had no idea how much I would love the finished results. The pattern is called "Apple Crisp" and is in Evelyn Sloppy's book "40 Fabulous Quick Cut Quilts". Fabric is Fresh Air by Chez Moi for Moda. I do remember how fun it was to make these blocks.
Hope you all have a great weekend. Our 100 degree plus weather has finally come to an end after a two week stretch. It is supposed to cool down to 93 this next week. Woo hoo. I am pretty much done with summer I tell you. Bring on the crock pot dinners and fall decorations.
