Quilting the Good Morning Quilt #1 for Hurricane Sandy
After completing the 'Renewal Quilt', Hurricane Sandy Quilt #2, it was time to move on or back to Hurricane Sandy Quilt #1, the Good Morning Quilt:
This quilt is quite large and required a bit more quilting time but, once again, it was a blast to quilt and I even expanded on a couple of quilting techniques I can now add to my McTavishing arsenal, which worked quite well in the 6" purple floral border. All the stabilization quilting was done w/clear mono-poly in between the strips, sashings, and borders, and to McTavish and outline both embroidered blocks. The batik green border sashings were quilted w/So Fine's 40 wt., Lollies, and So Fine's variegated Great Barrier Reef was used to quilt the purple floral borders with McTavishing quilting.
Lower right corner embroidered block - I couldn't resist adding this one ;-)
And after all the FUN quilting, the Good Morning quilt was ready to come off the frame:
Trimmed and ready for binding
And now on to finishing up the piecing of the third Hurricane Sandy quilt, 'Serenity':
Piecing the Robert Kaufman Artisan batik strips, Lake Country - they are stunning!
So far, so good - now off to press and sew some more!
Catch up w/ya later...
