So along with starting new projects for the New Year, I also made a little "goal" to get some of my older WIP done. And I am not even talking about the ones that need to be pieced. I have a pile of fished quilt tops from 2020 (and older) that really need to get quilted and bound. Again, I think this has a lot to do with the time factor of my trying something new in 2020, but the To Be Quilted pile has assuredly grown in the the last year. So what better place to start this new 2021 year than with that pile. So I started with the small baby size ones :)
First up, this beautiful Rose Garden quilt!! I posted about wanting to make this quilt when I got it in my May Sew Sampler Box and then promptly never wrote about it again. But ya, I was totally working on it :)
I pieced the entire quilt in a very short amount of time, and then had plans to share it when I got it all done, but that didn't happen so quickly :) Ya know, it just kind of hid down at the bottom of the pile. But I am so excited to have it done now, because this is just so pretty!!! Isn't this such a great design!!!
And when I quilted this yesterday, I decided on an all over swirl. This was pretty much the first quilt design I "mastered" and I hadn't done it in a while so it felt good to bring it back :) And it is super fast and it gives such great texture, so yummy!!!
I followed the pattern exactly for this quilt, only I changed the fabric placement. Isn't this just going to make the cutest baby girl gift. Now I just need a loved one to have a little baby girl ;) Oh, and this pattern was an exclusive Sew Sampler pattern, so sadly, it is not available for purchase, Just fyi in case you were looking for it.
And since I was working on baby quilts, I decided to just load a second one on the long arm!!! This is my Jolly Bar Row Along quilt ;) Isn't it so cute!!!
I decided to quilt it with an all over Curly Q design. This is my favorite design to use for sampler or row quilts. I just love how it ties it all together without taking away from each of the different blocks. And I started to add a little second line into the Curly Q instead of always stitching right back on the same line, and I think I like it. I will have to keep playing with that and see where it goes ;)
And that is my Jolly Bar Row quilt!! And you can totally find this pattern at the Fat Quarter Shop. All of the details and links for the blocks are in this post ;
) Now I totally want to make an entire quilt with just those sparrow tracks!! So cute!!!
But first, more quilting on the To Be Quilted pile. Here is hoping for lots more New/Old finishes in the coming weeks!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!
