Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

A Weekend of Quilting and Flowers

My second Easy Breezy is bound.  A couple of weeks ago I quilted it in either Lilac or Lavender wt Glide thread using the E2E design Dragonfly Dance.  I used the left over backing from Violet’s quilt and used it as the piping as well.  The quilt measures 40 x 48.

My little mini hex quilt is quilted. Now I have to figure out how to bind it.  I’m leaning towards a facing.

This 2008 Retreat block swap quilt. This used up the last of the roll of batting. I used 40 wt Glide in Magic Mint. The E2E design is Dragonfly Dance. I hope to get this bound to take to the Guild meeting on the 6th.

I’ve been working backwards through the weekend which brings me to this blue and green Strip Twist quilt. I didn’t pay attention to the width of the quilt backing when I purchased it. I just loved the colors.  It is a 108″ wide backing by Quilting Treasures. I finished the quilt after I purchased the backing and made it 105″ square. It was after I had the backing loaded that I realized I was going to have trouble.   So I stapled, yes stapled, a 12″ piece of muslin to the top of the backing and loaded the quilt about 1″ from the edge.  When I got to the bottom of the quilt I stapled another piece of muslin to the backing. That’s the bottom edge at the bottom of the picture.  I squeezed in a 105″ quilt on a 108″ backing, but I’d rather not do that again.

This is my Autumn Twist Azalea.

This is the 2nd Painted Lady Hibiscus, which I got planted Saturday morning.  I still need to move two of my gardenias and figure out where to put my hydrangea.
