This is my 800th post and I am celebrating by showing you a finish. Yepee! My Grace wall hanging is finally quilted and it is hanging in my family room where I see it every day. The quilting is very simple – in the ditch on the blocks (no quilting on the narrow border because I was too giddy to finish it), and stippling on the center to make the applique’ pop.
This happy quilt measures 26-1/2” x 30-1/2” and the blocks on the border finish at 4″. The machine applique’ is super easy to do using the blanket stitch and matching thread. The antenna was stitched by machine with the same thread used on the darker flowers.
The fabrics are bright and cheerful – all by Riley Blake Designs. You can make is scrappier and the colorway possibilities are endless. The Grace pattern is available at my Etsy store Quilterly or at a quilt store near you (if they don’t carry it yet, they can contact me here).
I have a kit ready with the pattern and all the fabrics I used on the quilt top. Would you like a chance to win it? Leave me a comment: tell me how you follow my blog, how often you do projects with applique’, and what type of applique’ you prefer. The winner will be announced on Monday, July 1st. Be sure to give me your email using this format – soandsoatmyinternetdotcom – so you don’t get tons of spam. I will mail it anywhere!
I look forward to reading your comments and wish you a fun day!
