I have a lovely red backing fabric from Brenda Wade's "Widebacks" (great service and great fabrics - no affiliations but gosh what a great idea Brenda had).
I want to custom quilt this quilt in every individual triangle - all 1040 of them. It is a quilt for my caravan - called "The Beach Quilt". This is a snapshot of my stash in 2007 - and it doesn't even look any smaller - and...I now have a crate full of scraps that I can use in my applique work.
The next project ... well if you remember I went from these little blocks.....
now to this huge quilt (for my bed). My husband is holding it upside down so you don't get to see the lovely 6inch blue batik border or the way I have arranged the blocks so they go from dark to light - I wanted to recreate the dappled light through the water. I am putting a pantograph on this quilt that I designed - with seahorses, leafy seadragons and kelp/seaweed. fingers crossed it goes okay. I will post a picture when I have quilted it.
This is the border and the next photo is of the lovely backing that I got from... you guessed it... "Widebacks". I can't say enough about them - so check it out yourself - here is the link... http://www.widebacks.com.au/ I did wash this batik fabric backing and it has come up lovely - so should be nice to quilt on my Longarm.
And this little quilt - well it has been a UFO for two years...I have finally finished piecing it - I had a two in one pattern - finished the first one and was left with all these triangles - so I have put them together with a border, organised the backing and binding - and just have to do the quilting now. Easy Peasy!
