My green Project Spectrum quilt, "Zipper"! (The backing is a different print of those funky cats in the border in flannel. The quilting will be cats....) I am blogging in Picassa, so I can't retrieve the "free" quilting pattern to hyper link it - but I will try to blog it in my next post.
A close up of the "zipper." Love that Jan Mullen print in the corner. She put out that line just before i got into quilting & more specifically BRIGHTS! Luckily there is a shop somewhat near me that a nice selection of her prints still available. But I still get a twinge of "I wish I had that fabric" when I see a different color way in someone elses quilt! I am using this fabric and most of my other Mullen prints in a pieced cats quilt... FUN! & Funky. The kitty next to the Jan Mullen prin that looks like he was disceted with my scraps - pure happenstance! My only goal was to have all of the kitties standing up. I added in the scraps for interest and to keep from making "franken kitties" - I was about 75% successful - there are a few seams that i forgot about & when I finally got around to bordering this quilt - I wasn't going to fuss with it anymore.
My wedding signatures quilt. This is the one that I talked about yesterday that I am less than satisfied about the border on.... My solid inner border would be the red that the the flowers are - it will be the binding. (BTW The backing is the border print.) All os the fabrics in this quilt are batiks. I got the pattern from Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine. The only difference in layout is that I have a lot of extra triangles on the edge - they had more "blank space." I am not sure if I am 100% happy with my modification or not, but I am not changing it!
