Starry Orange Letter Day Quilt

Picked up the quilt from the post office last Wednesday and thought I'd make a scrappy binding for it then found binding already made, so I made a scrappy binding for Orange Swoon quilt which is with Sarah for quilting, along with my Fresh quilt.


Sewed the scallop binding on and spent a couple of nights in front of the tv stitching it down.  I love this quilt - it's so fresh and happy.



Visited Karen on Saturday afternoon when she started quilting my Thimble Blossom Scrappy Sampler.  This quilt top has been finished for ages but I couldn't make a decision about quilting because I didn't want all-over quilting on the Piccadilly Circus Dresden Plate.

We decided that Karen would custom quilt the Dresden Plate with a spiral in the centre


then add a scroll design to each blade


before an over-all pattern over the rest of the quilt.


I wasn't sure about what binding to use for this quilt then I found some red binding already made in the drawer from the same fabric range as the outer border - bonus!


Can't wait to see this quilt when Karen comes over tomorrow night for stitching.

Yesterday afternoon I pin basted and quilted the little Snippets cot quilt.  The fabrics are bright Me and My Sister designs - the girls gave us a charm pack of their newest range Dot Dot Dash at the workshop and I won a charm pack of Giggles.
