TGIFF! Quilt Like An Egyptian
Welcome to this week’s TGIFF!
Glad to have you here at Sew Fresh Quilts for the P-A-R-T-A-Y!
I am quite excited to announce the finish of my MQG Fabric Challenge
today. This challenge features four fat eighth cuts of Michael Millers newest collection – Petal Pinwheels
. I just LOVE those soft and colourful prints! Yes, even enough to get the whole collection and make a larger version of this quilt in the very near future. Along with those four Petal Pinwheels cuts, a fat eighth each of Cotton Couture
in Coral and Star Jacks in Grey from the Atomic Tabbys
collection, were also included.
I blogged here
previously about my design process. And ended the post mentioning that the backing I had originally chosen was just not going to jive with the top. And that I would be making another visit to my LQS. Well, I did just that and found the.perfect.print
for the backing. It is Michael Miller’s Everyday Houndstooth
Quilting with my walking foot, Aunt Elna and I outlined the chevrons and along the Coral pyramid. Then continued quilting 1/4″ and 1″ parallel lines, using grey, orange and white Guetermann thread.
