Quilted Scrappy Solution


Posted on May 8th, by Amy in Long Arm Quilting, My kids, work in progress. 3 comments

When I originally pieced this quilt top, I called it my Scrappy Solution…four years later it’s quilted! This pattern actually made it’s way into Modern Basics, as Twisted Bars,  if you are interested in making your own.

 I had thought I would add a binding then show it off, but it won’t be happening this week.  Getting all the details into posts for Blogger’s Quilt Festival is taking up my sewing time.  Here’s a few details in the quilting -

I did loop-de-loops over the main area of the blocks, and in the corners where the square is formed I tried a few different things, before I decided to quilt the graduated loops.  I’m having fun quilting with the Crown Jewel! Of course, I did pin this top three times before I had it right, but I’m feeling more confident with that now, and my quilting. I am working on another quilt right now, hopefully I have pictures to post tomorrow.

Spring Soccer in the mountains is cold and windy! We’ve had fun watching our girls play, and look forward to the fall, when they have another round and it’s usually much warmer. Sophia had her first goal this week :)

I hope you are ready for BQF!

More soon -

  1. Lovely to see your quilt. And I’ve spent many a Saturday morning standing in the rain while my girls played netball. And way to go Sophia!!
