Quilting UFO’s becoming not-so-ufoie

I have a “few” quilt tops that I’ve decided I despartely need to get quilted and out of the house…well, a few out of the house. BECAUSE I HAVE SO MANY PRETTY FABRICS WAITING TO BECOME QUILT TOPS…and then start the whole thing all-over again. 🙂

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*** Ocean Quilt Top ~ wow…I just saw the date when I finished THIS top! August 2010! Good Grief. Well! It’s quilted and the binding is sewn on and ready to be hand-stitched to the backside.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*** Spring Window Quilt :::hanging head in shame::: THIS quilt top was finished in April 2010. I’ve got it sandwiched and have started in on the quilting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*** psiquilt quilt along Four Patch ~ I finished THIS top in July. It’s next in line after Spring Window to be sandwiched and quilted.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*** In a Jiffy Ric-Rac Quilt ~ Next in line is THIS quilt top that I used Camille Roskelley’s Ric-Rac pattern. I finished the top in June of this year. Will back it with the lime green Kona cotton.

Root of the Madder

The Madder plant’s roots have been used for centuries to dye textiles warm reddish-brown hues. Clear blue was a popular accent color in the 19th century madder prints, as it complements the earth tones nicely, allowing their richness to really come through. We reproduced post-Civil War era ditsy motifs to maintain the historic feel of our madder group and added coordinating solids to calm the busy ditsies. Because of the small scale of the prints, this collection is an excellent choice for scrappy quilts.

The rest of the samples are from the Fat Quarter Shop:
