Community Quilt 8

7 08 2012

This was actually two humidicrib quilts, but as they are so small (16 by 24 inches) and as they were similar tops and as I used the same quilting motif, I decided to class this as one community quilt.

Again, I used an open headband motif, with a variegated cotton thread in pale pastels on the top and a pre-wound bobbin in beige on the back. Yes, the wind was ‘fresh’ when I took these photos!

Baby quilt 3

6 08 2012

I made the third baby quilt this weekend and will post it to the recipient today (she lives in Queensland so hand-delivering it is not an option!). This time I used the same pattern as in quilts 1 and 2, but I used purples for the colour theme.

The backing fabric was some old fabric I’ve had forever — I think it was old curtain fabric I bought but never used. I used a Superior King Tut variegated pink/purple thread (Egyptian Princess, colour 403) in the top and a pale pink Wonderfil Deco-Bob (colour DB 205; 80 wt) in the bobbin. The quilting motif I used was an ‘open headband‘ style.

All piecing, binding etc. was done on my Husqvarna Sapphire 870 and the quilting was done on my Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen.
