Short and sweet is exactly what this post will more than likely be. Had an issue with my watermark app. Still not as it should be, but no more wasting time on it!! Plenty of stuff going on here. Girls dancing. New appliances coming in. AND lots of quilting!! I will give you a hint...all the quilts are flannel. :-) If you have been following Lisa Bongean's blog or Primitive Gatherings website, then you get what I am laying down here.
I quilted this a while back...remember I am a slow blogger. Short and Sweet is a beautiful little quilt designed by Kim Diehl from her book Simple Charm. I have loved this quilt from the first second I bought the book! I actually texted a photo of it to Lisa and mentioned that is would be a great kit for them to do. Wool and reproductions...what's not to love?? Imagine my excitement when I got the shop sample to quilt!!
Feathers and curved crosshatching for the quilting. Simple yet elegant.
I love all the wool petals.
This would be a great quilt to do a charm, wool or 9 patch swap with friends.
I decided after quilting some of the border design. It might have even more visual appeal if I filled in a basket weave design.
Yep, love it! :-)
Of course, you can never go wrong with feathers.
The quilting showed up beautifully on the backing.
When this top first arrived at my home, it was before Christmas. I pretended it was mine and took a few photos of it modeling in my home. :-)
Pretty sure this is going on my long list of projects I want to make. Specifics on the quilt...all So Fine Threads. Dream Blend for the batting. Primitive Gatherings has full kits, the book, wool kits...many options for this great little quilt here.
