Pedal to the Metal

The Purple Patches Quilt (I really am not very good at naming quilts) started earlier this week has been momentarily put aside to make time for a custom quilt.


I am really enjoying this quilt and have loved playing with the combination of color and fabric as requested. 


As you can see I have had the pedal to the metal, there has been no stopping me!  The batting has been prepared, and I have even gratuitously prepared some piecing to add interest to the quilt back.  All, except the weather, is going according to plan.  Another hot day, with a promise of rain later today.  We'll see.

  7. You are so motivating, I can't believe how many quilts you produce. Can't wait to see this one. I wanted to invite you to "Fabric Friday" if you'd like to pariticipate, I thought it would be fun. If interested pop on over to my blog.

  8. I think there's more than 24 hours in a day in Australia or something because you just pump out quilts like it's no big deal! I LOVE the colors... so much fun!

  9. More great colour combinations I love but would never think to do myself! Although I have many of those fabrics in my latest quilt top that I'm making for my son (some of the Denyse Schmidt). Inspired - yet again!

  18. your colors look great. you are an inspiration at the number of quilts you make. i have a question, what do you mean by prepare the batting.

  19. Ok, I've got to know. Your pressed seams are always so crisp- how do you pull it off? I can't ever seem to get mine to come out that nice!

    Also, do you pre-wash your fabrics, or no? If not, what do you do about bleeding of dark fabrics?
