I can’t believe it’s Friday already! This week just flew by, even with an extra day in it! I, of course didn’t get nearly all I wanted to get done, even with the extra day. I do have another little finish to share, though. Remember when I quilted my little tumbler runner, I said I also quilted something else on the same backing?? Well, I quilted Endless Summer, which was a project from the Le Petite group from last year.
Here it is bound and washed. Nice and crinkly. I love how it turned out! It’s the perfect size for my kitchen island. I chose to quilt a mini version of my allover freehand flower that I love to do.
You can see the design much better here.
Not bad for quilting at one o’clock in the morning!! Loading two small projects on one backing is the best idea ever.
The pattern is called Endless Summer by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts. I modified the original pattern to make mine into a runner. I pieced my Endless Summer nearly a year ago and posted it here. This is the original design.
I can’t tell how nice it is to be able to enjoy something that I pieced and quilted…finally!! Some before photos.
The fabric is Pom Pom de Paris by French General. Another favorite of mine!! I tried out another new batting too. This time I used Dream Cotton in the Request, which is the thinnest loft. This I would not use again. I think it’s a wonderful batting, but not ideally suited for longarm quilting unless you double batt it. I didn’t feel it was thick enough, therefore the stitches didn’t look as nice as they usually do. I felt like I had to tinker with the tension a lot. Dream Cotton in the Select (mid) loft was awesome to quilt with and definitely a better choice, in my opinion.
It’s Friday during Lent. You know what that means…pierogi time is here!!! 🙂 Hope everyone has a great weekend!
