A Quilted Finish!!!

I finished my Layer Cake Lattice quilt this week!!! Yay! The finished size is 80" X 90". You can find the pattern online here. I used fabrics from Quilt Minnesota 2016. The background is a water colored "Grunge".



I quilted it with an edge-to-edge design called "Harbour Wave", as Minnesota is Land of 10,000+ Lakes! The batting is Quilter's Dream Batting--Wool, so the quilting really shows up.



The fabrics are from the statewide quilt shop hop held every year in the summer. They are always Minnesota-themed and designed just for the quilt shop hop. Here's a close-up of some of my fabrics--Lady Slipper (the Minnesota state flower), canoe paddles, sunfish, campers.


My next quilt project is two extra-long twin size quilts that I'm making for our next-door neighbor who moved recently. We miss her! Rainbow colors, plus white background. You'll be seeing more progress on this next week.



Our DS came home for a visit this week. He brought me these AMAZING quilt gifts! A tower of 45 fat quarters and a folding cutting mat, to take on the go. Wow! Fun!



As for client quilts this week, I quilted this sunny child's quilt for Mary. The edge-to-edge design is called "Cinnamon". Yes, it makes me think of cinnamon rolls while I'm quilting!?!



This beautiful batik table topper is also Mary's. I used "Tickle" for the quilting.



Here's another colorful, fun throw, made by Mary. The quilting is a new design called "Fibonacci Lace".



And finally, our guild's quilt show is running now through March 17th. More info at our website: Dakota County Star Quilters.



Here's the super fun part: Mary Fons was our guest speaker today! Her talk at 9AM was called, "You Call That a Quilt?!", where she spoke about the 4 styles of quilting in the USA. And at 11 AM, "10 Things I Know For Sure (I Think!)", talking about observations she's made in the quilting world. She's such a great speaker--humorous, and poignant!





Here's one of her quilts she shared at the end. It's the spider web quilt pattern. She made it in an effort to use her brown fabrics. The red background she used is just perfect.



Grace and peace!  ~Nancy
