August Quilt Finishes

Last month I kept saying I’ll show the finished quilt soon.  I finished these in August, but was thwarted by the much needed rain to hang them for the photo shoot.  The rain cleared, so here they are.

The Kansas Troubles Jelly Roll, Fun with Bricks and Carolina Christmas.  The tops had been waiting for me to quilt and I finally got them done.

Now for more detail.

Kansas Troubles Jelly Roll

Started with a Kansas Troubles Wildflower Serenade jelly roll and added a few more Kansas Troubles strips to enlarge the quilt.  I used a wide backing, but I’m not sure what it is.  Warm & Natural batting, Superior Omni Thread Navy Blue in the top, a pre-wound Coats & Clark poly bobbin. “V-15″ is the only other marking.  It’s a light khaki.  After washing the quilt measures 55″ x 73”.  This quilt was started 10/21/11 and finished on 8/30/12.  Quilted on a Nolting with freehand feathers.

Fun with Bricks

This is a Bonnie Hunter design.  The pattern is available HERE.  I started this quilt 1/22/11 as a leader ender project to use up my pre-cut bricks.  There’s everything in here including, Christmas, Easter and even part of a panel.  The border and backing fabric came from my mom’s stash.  I extended it with extra blocks.  The batting is Warm & Natural, the bobbin thread the same khaki pre-wound bobbin, the top thread is King Tut # 920 Sands of Time. After washing the quilt measures 58″ x 80″.  I quilted it with an all-over freehand floral on a Nolting.

Carolina Christmas

Another Bonnie Hunter design, this was the 2009 Mystery quilt that I started on 11/27/09.  The pattern is now available in Scraps & Shirttails II. I think I made all of the blocks, but decided I wanted a smaller quilt. With the extra blocks I made two baby quilts (quilt #1 and quilt #2) and still had leftover blocks. I used those on the back.  Quilted on a Nolting, I used the khaki pre-wound bobbins and the Sands of Time thread.  Warm and Natural batting.  After washing the quilt measures 57″ x 83″.  I quilted feather in the border and an overall floral pattern in the blocks.

All three quilts sat for a bit waiting for binding, to hide the thread tails and finally wash.  I spent one evening hiding tails on all three quilts, thus the same finish date.

I rent time on a long arm at Quilted Memories to do my quilting.  Now to pick my next quilt top.

2 Thoughts on “August Quilt Finishes

  1. Nice finishes, Pam. I like how you used the seams in the Jelly roll quilt to make the feathers. I remember the Carolina Christmas blocks you made and love your finished quilt with it’s unique backing. You are getting more and more brave at your Free-hand work.

  2. Wow. I bet it feels great to finish all those quilts. Hum, Carolina Christmas is the only mystery I’ve ever done of Bonnie Hunters. I decided to half the quilt so I have half size top ready for some sort of border treatment. I applaud your finish. Well, all of your finishes! I’ve never heard of Coats and Clarks prewound bobbins. Do you get it at Quilted Memories? I own a Nolting and I’m sure my machine would like those too. Congratulations on all the finishes!
