New quilt to share! This is my little break from quilting last night. I had to dust the cobwebs off these photos before I posted them because I quilted this quilt last August!! I am thinking the border fabric was not available yet and the pattern was not complete when I quilted it. Maybe? Anyways, it is “Camp Randall” by Lisa Bongean for Primitive Gatherings. A re-created antique quilt, all scrappy and in reproduction fabric!!! Gorgeous. I have to apologize for my photo quality. I was having issues with the settings that day (operator error). This was right after I dropped the camera in the garage. Oops. 🙂 Since I have purchased a fancy shmancy new one…haven’t figured out how to use it yet. That is one of my goals for this summer. Be very prepared for lots of outdoorsy type photos. Anyhoo…Camp Randall…
You know I love me some scrappy quilts!!!
Another quilt I would have loved for LB to forget she sent me.
Feathers always complement any quilt, but they really look nice on a reproduction quilt.
I love the name Camp Randall too. A nice tribute to Wisconsin and I am not just talking about the Stadium the Badgers play in. Camp Randall was a historical U.S. Army Training site in Madison WI, including training Union Soldiers during the Civil War.
I used So Fine Threads from Superior on the top and in the bobbin. There are many thread options out there. I use So Fine 99% of the time for several reasons. First, Superior Threads makes an amazing product. Living up to its name superior. It is a fine, lint free thread. It has a nice matte finish which is the perfect complement for all the reproduction quilts I quilt. It IS my thread of choice. The batting is a single layer of Dream Blend. I debated on double batting this quilt. I quilted this at a time when I was just starting to experiment with the practice. I think double batting is a real asset when working with darker or busier reproduction fabric as far as the quilting is concerned. Basically, it helps the quilting pop. I received many questions regarding double batting and what I use, so I think I need to do a post on batting very soon. 🙂
I try to include in all my posts as much info regarding the quilt pattern and/or kits…where to buy..etc., if the info is available to me to provide. Why do I include that info in my posts??? I receive a lot of emails regarding wanting to buy patterns or kits. Or Pineapple templates, rulers…pineapple quilt patterns…just to name a few…advice on how to make a pineapple quilt…LOL!! Funny because I personally have never pieced one!! I could definitely tell from the email that the individual wasn’t so amused when I couldn’t offer her any advice. 🙂 Advice on longarm quilting, now we are talking! I am more than happy to help if I can!!! I guess with a name like The Quilted Pineapple, I should definitely have some advice on how to make a pineapple quilt!! 🙂
