Another Quilt Top Finished

It's always good to finish the piecing on a quilt top.  This full-sized quilt top is the Easy Hex pattern from Gudrun Erla's (G.E. Designs) Big Blocks Big Style book.  Gudrun was the guest designer at Quilt Cove's 2012 Fall Retreat and that is where I started this top. 


How I ever managed to get Rusty to pose so nicely in front of the quilt is beyond me.  I think it was simply my lucky day!

Now that that the quilt top is done, the next step is to get it quilted and bound.  Given that it is going to be in the 90's the next few days with high humidity I guess I won't have to worry about getting it done right away!  But that snow will be flying before we know it!

Thanks for stopping by...

Cathedral Windows Tablerunner

I'm hooked on Cathedral Windows after volunteering to do a 10 minute demo for the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild.  There are so many fun things to do with them.

Accurate pressing and folding is the key to a successful Catheral Window.  Here's one of the blocks.


And here's the finished 10 x 20 Cathedral Window Table Runner/Topper made from 30s Reproduction Fabrics.


I'll be posting more Cathedral Window projects in the near future!

Thanks for stopping by...
