Here are some close ups of the great quilting by Sandi Wagner of Sew Fine Machine Quilting:
This quilt is the pattern "Stars for a New Day", which was the BOM from thequiltshow.com in 2009. It consists of fabrics predominantly by Kaffe Fassett, hence the name of the quilt, "Kaffe-inated."
Our guild meeting was Friday evening and we kitted up fabric for our charity quilt project for 2014. On Saturday guild members met to sew drapes that will be used as backdrops for the upcoming quilt show in March. We made 64 new drapes so now we are set! In December we repaired over 250 drapes.The channels were too small and tight in many instances to easily pass the display rods through. They should be much easier to hang and with any luck the job of erecting all the drapery standards will be much quicker this year.
This morning I pieced an easy strippy top from plaid fabrics that have been in my stash forever. This will be the first of two or three quilts that will be donated to the charity project. A lot of floral and otherwise feminine fabrics get donated for charity quilts and it seems that quilts appropriate for boys are in the minority. This will help to tip the balance a bit.
