    Two more finishes!

    Well, I finished the little farm quilt last weekend but waited to wash it until I had another to throw in with it.

    Made from a Fat Quarter bundle I found a while back at Tuesday morning of Farm Fresh. It's either Riley Blake or RJR, can't remember and some matching yardage I found on sale at Marshall Dry Goods.

    The next one I pieced last weekend and quilted yesterday. I finished up the hand binding this morning. I was just playing around with scraps and started making string blocks, but then decided to add a half block of white, or almost half. If I make this again I will make sure to make the white half exact so I have points. Like I said, I was playing and this just sort of happened. I off-set the triangles and quilted with wavy lines, heavier on the colored part. The border is also scrappy, put together on adding machine tape. It is the first time I've done that type of quilting and actually had fun doing it and it went fairly fast. The quilt washed up extremely soft even though the quilting is closer together than I normally do.

    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    Ooooh, they look super. I love those offset triangles.

    You say you quilted with wavy lines, so is all the other texture from washing it?

          Yes, all the crinkles come from washing and drying the quilts. I use cotton batting, or the 80/20 so you get a small ammount of shrinkage which adds to the texture.

            Nice quilts. I really like the triangle one. To me washing is what gives them the quilt look.

                You've been very busy! They are both very cool! I think I have that Tuesday Morning FQ in my stash, need to drag it out to look at it again!

                  Both beautiful - but I really am drawn to the triangles! So creative you are, and love the quilting!

                    The farm quilt is great, but I really find the points to be outstanding. It is a beautiful quilt.

                            Love, love, love them. While I am always thrilled with kid themed quilts, I must say that the brights against the stark white, is stunning. Love the quilting on that one too. AWESOME!!!

                              Well, I was thinking of an older girl, you know, 14 to 16. Past the "kid" stage maybe liking something more modern. Honestly didn't know what it was going to be when I started it.
