I did get my Offset Gradients quilt bound this past week. As a reminder, I used Alison Glass’ Spectrum pattern, and this was a quick project to make, and GASP, it was not paper-pieced! The quilt measures 54″ X 78″, and I only used Alison Glass and Giucy Giuce fabrics in the quilt. I’ve accumulated quite a stash of their fabrics over the years, and it’s nice to finally be using them. (I dipped my toe in the water when I made my Color Gradient Strip Quilt quilt a few months ago, but I made a serious dent in their fabrics when I cut 7 inches width of fabric for the triangles for this project). I read a newsletter over the weekend from Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl where she introduced me to a new acronym: FOUF–Fear of Using Fabric. I have definitely suffered from FOUF over the years, but it absolutely brings me to joy to be creating projects with these beautiful fabrics, so my FOUF has significantly decreased!
Here’s one close-up of the beautiful quilting done by Rebecca at Rebecca Grace Quilting that looks as lovely on the Kaleidoscope Charcoal sashing which I also used for binding as it does on the prints:
And here’s another close-up that shows off the Sunrise Chevron quilting pattern:
I really love the photo Rebecca took before she returned the quilt to me (note to self–try more photos from different angles):
Here’s a a full shot of the back of the quilt that shows the wide back Stonehedge Gradations Ombre in Graphite from Backside Fabrics.
And a close-up that shows how well the So Fine 409 Smoke thread blends with all the greys on the back:
This month I plan to get all the flying geese units sewn into columns for July, August, and September for my New Mexico, California, and Washington temperature quilts. Read more info about my October 2022 One Monthly Goal here. Here are the flying geese for July sewn together for NM, CA, and WA:
Here’s a Sashiko flower square that I also photographed on our robin egg picnic table:
To-Do for the week of Oct 11th-Oct 17th:
- Bind my Lumen quilt that I received back from Rebecca last week.
- Sew flying geese units into columns for August for NM, CA, and WA.
- Do a little more Sashiko stitching in a different color palette than grey/turquoise.
