My July 2009 STUD Quilt


I was paired up with Kimmie this time around for the July 2009 Swap Til You Drop (STUD) mini exchange on flickr. She let me know she received her package last week so I thought I'd share what I sent her. The theme for this round was "Summer Lovin." I added some hearts and used some bright 30's fabric. I used a strip of the binding fabric as an artistic element and offset it from the center. Here are some closeups...




I had a few issues with the quilting on my machine. I didn't baste the layers well enough to hold them together. The top fabric dragged along and overlapped in places. Overall I was happy enough with it to send it along to its new home. I hope Kimmie enjoys it for many years to come.

  3. Oh, this is just so darling. I really love how the blocks aren't all the same size, too. It adds just that extra bit of interest. I bet Kimmie is thrilled!

  8. I love 30's and that's a great little quilt! Do you have a walking foot? It would help with any drag too. ;-)

  11. Great job on the STUD quilt. I really like the name of the group. I second the walking foot. It would help you with the drag. You can do much more than just straight lines with a walking foot. My favorite is the serpentine line. See if your machine has it and check it out sometime.
