I finished up the Bubbles top Wednesday afternoon. I am pleased with how it turned out. I think I’m going to quilt it with wavy lines to give the illusion of the bubbles rising. I have a complimentary piece of turquoise fabric for the backing too.
The pink around the edges is my design wall showing.
I started on a new top today, something for 4th of July. I found this free pattern on Busy Hands Quilts, it’s by Myra and called Star Crossed Rainbow lap quilt . Check out some of her other patterns as well, they are well written and can be scrappy or color controlled.
Instead of rainbow colors I am using a RWB jelly roll and a tea dyed muslin for the background. These blocks are for the center of the star and the corners. I used a pigma pen to number the strips, I used 20 different colors. The quilt shown above uses 40, things can get out of order quickly if you don’t have the strips marked.
I loaded a quilt on the frame last week, and I can’t remember what I named it, the pattern name or anything about it other than I made it some time after finishing Hampton Ridge. I has a lot of scraps in it from that quilt. Maybe the pattern is from a book, I don’t even have any photos of making it. Hmmm. Ah! I have it. It’s True Blue by Carrie Nelson. The backing is a 108″ wide civil war type print that I got on sale a few months ago. I’m using a pantograph that came with my machine, it is loops and leaves.
Thanks for stopping by.
