This is not officially on my WIP list because it is business related (I realize I've made a few exceptions), but wanted to share what I worked on yesterday with you and see if you have some opinions on the quilting styles. Feel free to share a comment. If you like these panel prints and would like to purchase the raw fabric, just let me know! There are four unique designs. Three are printed on 1 width of the fabric.
I'm busy getting ready for Fall Release in our local wineries this weekend. What do you think of these four styles of quilting?
This panel will be made into a placemat and given to Patit Creek for their tasting area as a thank you for allowing me to display my quilts and sell finished products on consignment. I kind of like the fancy feather in this and might do more like this without the words at the top.
This panel was stitched with a cross-hatch and will be made into a placemat. I had a bit of an issue using my RedSnappers to attach the fabric to the leaders and using my GamGuide to assist with the cross-hatching. I'll pin the top of the backing next time! I think in principle I like this concept as long as I do a more accurate spacing. It kind of looks like you're looking at the scene through a window.
This placemat is just a scallop from the corner freehand sort of design. I was experimenting to try and find something that didn't take so long and yet still worked. This kind of looks like a bunch of grapes in macro, but I don't think it looks 'nice' enough.
Ireland!! Join me on a fabulous adventure in Ireland, June 5-15, 2012.
In an effort to do more blogging that isn't just 'status' related for WIP's/ Design Wall's and BOM's Away Monday link ups, I intend to write a blog post each Friday as I explore techniques, fabric finds, and designs. I hope you will follow along.
The Blogger's Quilt Festival is currently going on through Nov. 4. Here is my entry and a subsequent link to the link-up.
