Wow it's been a while! Why you ask? Well I have had some ups and downs with the quilting world and I frankly got out of the habit to blog. It's part of my reasons anyways. I will probably write more about that another day.
But, I do have something to show! I was asked to paint a chair to be auctioned for the hospital. I didn't get the chair done (no time and no paint!); but, I asked if I could donate a quilt instead since they are also doing a silent auction of used quilts. The organizer quickly said yes!
I had a Christmas Take 5 quilt top already completed so I thought this would be a good one! I used the Accuquilt Take 5 die (for the studio) and it went together so quickly - it was wonderful and it won't be the last time I use this die!!
Here is a close-up of the quilting. I used the loricles grooved board on the back of my long arm, called Egyptian Eye, but I had it run down the length of the quilt instead of across the width.
I used 40 weight Glide thread in Sand. I am absolutely in love with the way that this turned out and the texture and dimension it adds! What I was trying to achieve was the effect of hanging ornaments and I think I achieved it :-)
I hope that the quilt raises a lot of money for the hospital and that someone will love it!
Are you doing any Christmas charity work?
