I am working on another secret sewing project, but good news is that it will be revealed around July 1st and will include the pattern!! So not a big wait. It will be called “Altitudinal Ecosystem”…its the biology/ecology side of me being released :-).
I have a couple of photo’s though that I posted on instagram for a sneak peek (sorry for tease).
I had a hard time with creating the back as I wanted to use my scraps from the front but I really wanted to use one of the mountain prints from Sarah Watson’s Indian Summer Fabric line. It just wasn’t working. Instead I went with a combination of the print and grey and white stripes. I added the pops of color from the front into the back which I love. This design choice evolved from cutting a strip to short and adding a filler from the scraps.
I decided to do mostly straight line quilting on the front. I had a blast at our guilds sew-in on Sunday and at Spoonflower’s pins & needles meet-up quilting it. I have decided to add some wavy line quilting using the method I used on my one first finished quilts.
My other projects look like this:
|Idea, Design, Create||8th June||
|Altitudinal Zonation||25 June||
(Row for Sisterhood of Traveling Quilts)
|Pushme, Pullme|| 30 June
(ship for quilting)
| TOP (last-minute changes – adding a strip to top),
|Yoshiko Jinzenji Quilt Sampler||30 June||TOP (UNDERWAY), BACK, BASTE, QUILT, BIND|
I sure am loving that quilting, AND the lime/citron thread you used. Can’t wait to see the reveal!
Oh I love that Indian Summer fabric, so glad you could find a way to use it! Amazing quilting too with your walking foot.
Your wavy line walking foot quilting looks so neat; I’m going to go read up on how you do it! 🙂
Oooh what a cool name for a quilt! Look forward to the big reveal!
If you have a Janome you can make curvy lines with Stitch #99 and the walking foot. Stitch 99 is not on all models–so be warned.
Would you consider doing a tutorial on how you go about doing the wavy quilting?
