Quick and Easy

I had plans to sew all day on Saturday! I was able to sew most of the day and then this morning I completed my task. (the quilt on the right). It's for a friend for her birthday on Friday. I'll need to quilt and bind it this week. This quilt reminds of the Turning Twenty quilt - looks really "flat and unappealing" until you quilt it. Suddenly it comes to life! :-) I hope this one will spring to life when I quilt it.

Thought for today: Love what you do and do it with all your heart!

Gratitudes:

Popsicles and a quiet Sunday

great to whip up a fast quilt for a gift, looking forward to seeing the quilting you do on it.

Oh I"m sure it will come to life - I love the fabrics and colors. And I love the pattern - so it is a turning 20 pattern?

Libby said...

That's another terrific quilt, Darlene. What is the pattern called? Can't wait to see it quilted.

Nancy said...

I'm not sure I'd call it "flat and unappealing". I rather like it. :-)

Vicky said...

Great job!

The colors are great, and it's quick~ the quilting will make the quilt.

Your colours is so delicate. And when the quilting is done, I know it will be georgius. The quilting does the whole quilt.

I like this pattern - I have seen a few quilts from it. One was a Japanese quilt with bright colours for the big pieces and indigo prints for the bars. It looked great.
I love the Stars quilt - I really love the colour placement to get the diagonal stripes. Might have to put that one in my To Do book!

Wowee - you are a piecing MACHINE! I can't believe you got that quilt top done so fast. Great job!

Judy said...

You are a quick sewer! I love quilts that step like this so you don't have matched seams. Not boring a flat at all. I think the qu8ilting will make it come alive!

Bonnie said...

I don't think it is flat at all. It is a good pattern to show off the fabrics. What a nice birthday gift.

Cynthia said...

I love the fabrics and colors you have used for this quilt. I'm sure your friend wiill be happy with it.

I also like the quilt that you posted about on Saturday. Love the Robyn Pandolph fabrics.

It has definite possibilities--did you tell the pattern source or something you came up with?

Finn said...

Great looking quick quilt Darlene!

What size are your blocks? This looks like a lovely pattern. Be sure and show us the life you give it after quilting!
