I am still binding my clamshell quilt. It's about 90 ish inches all around so it's taking a while! So far, I'm halfway done. The best time to work on handwork is when I am just veg on the couch and watch TV. Somehow this is very relaxing to me and I'm still being productive.
My next WIP is the Anna Maria Horner log cabin quilt I started a couple weeks ago. I couldn't get it out of my head and needed to keep going! The top is all together now. It's another queen sized quilt, seems that is all I am working on lately. I love having new pretties for my bed. Makes my room feel cozy and personal.
Here is the quilt top before the blocks were sewn together. It was all I could do to keep the kitties off the blocks!
Here she is all put together. The solid color is Kona Glacier which matches perfectly with the teals in Anna Maria Horner's collections. I used all the collections I have for this quilt, cutting a few strips of each fabric. I used the pink cathedrals print from her Good Folks collection. Now to quilt...I have no idea how I will do it. I thought about maybe sending it out to a longarm quilter, but it depends on cost.
If I do quilt it myself, I need to figure out the best Aurifil thread color to use since the teal is a bit outside the normal teals. I used a medium gray Aurifil 50wt to piece the logs but don't really want to use that to quilt...want the color to blend in more to not take away from the overall quilt. I love me some Aurifil thread!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I love looking at everyone's projects and hearing about their processes. Linking up with Lee from Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
