As a new quilter I have just two finished quilts, so I thought I would share both of them with you. The first quilt, Framed Robots, was made as a baby gift for my sons' pediatrician. It was made using David Walker's Robots collection and the Framed pattern was designed by Katie Henniger of the Bay Window Quilt Shop. Katie's first line of fabric for Robert Kaufmann will be introduced at Quilt Market. I love the random grid quilting that I chose to do for this quilt, as I think it reflects the quilter I envision myself to be... I just need more experience and time to accomplish those things that I imagine!
Below is my first quilt, Fat Quarter Breeze. The pattern is by Butch Myers, I just added the white sashing in between the blocks. The fabric is an old line by Piece of Cake, Scrap Basket Treasures mixed with Jennifer Paganelli's Mod Girl Molly for the backing.
I added two rows of improvisational pieced blocks to the back that I was rather proud of until I discovered my LA quilter did not get the back centered?!
So to detract from this I added a very long and narrow label to the side using selvedge's from the fabric lines and hand printing the particulars with a fine point sharpie. I don't like my own handwriting, but since it wasn't perfect (who was I kidding like it was before this backing issue?!) I decided why not... and along those same lines, I even tried machine stitching the binding rather than by hand and was pleasantly surprised! So this first quilt has been a successful learning experience I would say!
