Show & Tell Tuesday
I have three quilts to share today.
The original quilt was called French Braid and measured 49" x 58". I added an inner and outer border so my quilt measures 62" x 74."
It was made from 180 strips measuring 3" x 8 1/2" each. I used Tonga Batiks by Timeless Treasures.
I made Bali Braid in 2009. It was designed by Karen Montgomery.
Rolling Waves was one of the first quilts I ever quilted on Annie, my long-arm machine. Like Bali Braid, it is made with Batik fabric on both the front and back.
I quilted it with a simple circular pattern. I ran in to all kinds of problems because the thread I was using kept breaking. It was rather thick (30 wt) and I did not have the correct size needle. Once I found the right size needle the quilting went much more smoothly.
Rolling Waves was also made in 2009. I don't have much information on the pattern used. I can't find it anywhere. I do remember that I made it in a class taught by my friend, Pat O'Brien. It measures 72" square.
May Rag Quilt
This is the last quilt I have finished in my rag quilt collection.
It was made in 2011. I hope to start working on the rest of these quilts over the next few months.
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching!!!
