I have been plugging away at the Warm Regards quilt, making the background blocks, here is my progress so far.
I have also started the applique in the centre block. Just made the berries (took most of a day!) and have tried their placement here...which I haven't finalised, I think I need to buy some applique glue, as an alternative to pins. I am normally happy with pinning, but there are too many berries here that will move when I go to pin them one at a time.
And after all that teasing, finally the reveal of my first finish for 2018!
I love a cheats finish...this was quilted by Vicki Jenkin, long arm quilter and she finished it after Christmas. But then I had to put the binding on and to be really honest, the label is stitched down, but not written on! I needed to find the name of the fabric line as well - so I could write the label!
But I though I wanted to use fabric line name, so I can give this quilt a name! However it was a "Collection with a Cause Historical Blender" jelly roll from Moda, so not inspiring me at all. The pattern is Vivid Grid by Sharon McConnell and was published in Quilts and More Spring 2017 edition, which I have made before, from my bright 2.5" scraps. Think that I used a whole jelly roll and yardage of background fabric - a tan check. I like the muted soft colours, but not sure who I am going to gift it to yet.
So quilt without a name, you are my first finish for 2018, lets hope there are more to come!
Happy quilting Sue.
