I'm so happy to have had time to get a QOV quilted this week--it's been on my shelf for a couple month's and I was feeling bad about not getting it finished.
It went pretty quickly after I practiced the quilting design on my white board a few times.
|The design is called Loopy Clams. |
I found the design on YouTube, demonstrated by Lyn Durbin at the above link.
It was a lot of fun and went pretty quickly.
I used Signature 40 wt. thread in the Mother Goose color.
|The Quilt of Valor top was pieced by the Brainerd MN QOV group. |
They put the tops together in kits with the batting, back, binding and a matching pillowcase. The kits can be picked up at Country Fabrics, quilted, and returned to be bound.
It's a good way to get some quilting practice and help QOV at the same time.
|I love the texture of Loopy Clams--I will be using this design again!|
|I didn't get all of my Halloween hexies stitched by the 31st, but here are a few newly finished.|
This is Jack--
not sure why the purple stripes on his hat are so washed out in the photo.
I used black iridescence sequins for the bubbling brew in the cauldron.
I couched green chenille yarn for the hair.
