Interlude : :

Unfortunately, I still don't have any pretty new quilt photos to share here today. When we had time on Monday it was sleeting outside and so we decided to wait. I'm just so completely excited about this quilt, I can't wait to share it. It might just be my most favorite quilt yet! It's the third that I've backed with an Art Gallery voile and if I have my way, I will only back quilts with this gorgeous substrate for the rest of my quilty life. I'm such a fan!

Voile Love

My Follow the Arrow Quilt, this newest Emmy Grace collection quilt, and my Scrappy Hourglass quilt were each backed in a different voile print. The feel of this soft, fluid, lightweight cotton fabric is unparalleled, especially went quilted! I recently received a roll of my Midnight Roof print in voile from Art Gallery Fabrics and I cannot wait to back my Scrappy Bear Paw quilt with it!

I've only completed just one more block since last week. Truthfully, I didn't enjoy piecing this one together as much as the first, most likely due to the fact that they are identical and I lack the diligence for repetition. I managed to push through, but now I'm considering a little tweak in design for my Scrappy Bear Paw plans!

I did, however, enjoy making a second quilted Folk Plaid pillow the other day! This time a little smaller than the first one and finished with a quilted Midnight Roof back with some left over Emmy Grace quilt binding in Ripples River. I adore this combination of denim blue and honey yellow!!

I've added it to the pile of pillows that I plan to sell soon!

And now I'm feeling the urge to start something new! Have a great day!!

  2. Can't wait to see what you start making! I too definitely have to be in the right mood for repetitive sewing! Or let a project last a little longer than usual so I can piece it little by little. :) I actually wrote about that just tonight on my blog post about the quilt I'm making with my Wild and Free fabric! xxx

  3. How many days does it take you to come up with such nice patterns?

    1. I don't usually plan out my patterns before hand, I just make them up as I go. I like having the freedom to change my mind, and it's so much fun!

  4. I'm thinking I need to venture into voile backing for my next project, anything that makes a quilt even softer and cozier is worth trying.

  5. I'm feeling the urge to start something new too, maybe even break out my Wild and Free! Better finish my dad's birthday present first though - ahem!

  6. I love how the binding of your plaid pillows just sets the whole pillow off, or maybe the plaid sets the binding off? Either way, it looks great on both cushions.

  7. I've started binding my pillows after admiring yours.
