Love That Ivy!

Blue Lily Quilted Blue Lily quilt pattern

I spent some time today with Millie, my quilting machine.  We’re getting along better, though she has a little squeak to her when she sews.  Not sure what’s up with that, other than attitude.  Anyway, I put my Blue Lily quilt on the frame, and within two hours had it finished.  Now to put the binding on, add a hanging sleeve and it will be finished!  I don’t know why the color isn’t right in these pictures… the green is more of a lime green, and the light areas a batik in a light pale greenish-blue.  So I guess you’ll have to just pretend!  There isn’t an ounce of hand stitching in this quilt; the applique is done by machine, as is the piecing and quilting.  Not my usual mode, I know.  I’m trying something new!

I really enjoyed the quilting process;  I used a meandering ivy pattern, and it was easy and smooth to sew.  I like it when things work out that way, don’t you?

Happy Saturday – as long as I’m inside where it’s warm, not outside in the tons of snow we are being pounded with. 

Back to work!
