Hello friends! I hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend.
I am planning to be back in business again with regular sewing and blogging. If you follow me, you will know life got pretty messy for me and my family. Between the loss of my brother, several family health problems and my own health issues, it was not a pleasant time. I had surgery number 2, and I'm doing much better now!
I feel like it's been forever since I had a quilt finish. I have finished up my quilt using Reunion by Sweetwater.
I've been collecting Sweetwater fabrics for quite awhile now and decided it was time to use some up.
I have been having a real fit with my camera lately (it's time for a new one, any suggestions??) and it's muddy and wet today so pictures didn't come out so great. The only one I was able to capture of the entire quilt ended up with a big brown line through the center UGH. So partial shots will just have to do.
Quilting In The Rain I based mine off of. I did change my sizing a bit. I wanted this to end up 50 x 70, but as always, it came up about an inch short both directions. No matter how accurately I piece and cut, this always happens to me.
I used my last package of Warm n White on this one. Now I have that whole big roll I got for Christmas that I can't wait to use from this post. I love the softness and drape of it! I used Gutermann white cotton for piecing and quilting. I chose a red print from Reunion for the binding.
I had small strips left from cutting the blocks, so this is what I put into the back. Nothing fancy, but I didn't have to use anymore of my stash either :) I didn't get a good shot of the back either, sorry.
Hope you are all doing well and I hope you will find your way back to me after my absence! I will be back in a couple days to share some fun new storage finds I have acquired. Along with some fun new fabrics and a baby quilt I should be done with by Monday evening.
Here's a sneak peek!
