    Default My Latest

    Hello everyone! I wanted to share with you my latest quilt. I don't move quickly: this one I started early February and just finished it over the weekend. It's a 1930s reproduction quilt called Beginners Luck. This one is going on a guest bed in our house. Quilting it was a pain. I couldn't get any markings to show up on the print fabrics (a common problem with 1930s reproduction fabrics) so I used the quilting paper by Golden Threads to trace the motifs and sew over. There were 120 motifs to quilt (60 in the square areas and 60 in the round areas)!!! That was a lot of paper to rip off afterwards. The backing was made from all my leftover fabrics plus some additional yardage. Putting the back together was fun. Anyway, I am very happy with how it turned out. Thanks for looking.

    There is nothing wrong with being slow when the results are the likes of that quilt! It is outstanding.

    Gorgeous! I just love your fabrics, colors, and the pattern. The backing of scraps is a great idea and you've done a very creative piecing. Love, love, love it!

    Did you find the Golden Threads paper easy to work with? I've been wanting to try it out but worried that my needle would get sticking and maybe the paper would be hard to remove. Any tips?

    An absolutely lovely quilt. You must be so proud - justifiably so. And the quilting to me looks well worth the effort.
