Finished It Friday

OMG! All I can say is I can’t believe they are finished! The last stitch went in to the binding this morning and all three quilts were washed ready to be put on display in the clubhouse.

Two more Large Throw Sized Quilts

The first is “Fore”, a queen sized quilt that was made from a pattern called Night Eyes by Teresa Mairal Barreu who blogs and makes great videos under the names TeresaDownUnder or Sewn Up. She also just published a book “Turnabout Patchwork” which has some really fun projects in it. Made from quilt shop cottons, an 80/20 Hobbs batting. This quilt was pieced and quilted on my Janome Skyline S3. I used my favorite Aurifil thread in both bobbin and top.

Next up is “Garden Delight”. The fabrics make me think of the beautiful flower beds on the golf course, which one of our local greenhouses donate the plants and do the gardening for. They are always so pretty when the bedding plants grow out! I saw a picture of a quilt somewhere and tried to duplicate it from memory. I only wish I knew who had designed this so I could credit them. I thought it was a great way to use the pretty golf fabric since I only had a bit of it. Again it was pieced on my Janome Skyline S3, but the majority of the quilting was done on my Pfaff Hobby Quilter since I was playing with rulers and doing free motion quilting using Aurifil threads. I used a 80/20 Hobbs batting to keep the quilt washable.

Can you see the pretty golf fabric?

The third quilt for the golf course fundraiser is “Hidden Treasures”. That is my thought when I think of this golf course. It’s 9 holes and you can pretty much always walk on right away. I had the blue golf shoe fabric for the back and the border, but my scrap bins were calling for me to just play. I did just that and ended up with my own design for this one. I love playing with 2 1/2″ scraps (which I get to cut so quickly on my Accuquilt Go cutter with my dies for both squares and HSTs) so making the 16 patches and then adding some scrappy HSTs to add some movement was too much fun. Again it was pieced on my Janome Skyline S3 and I did quilt it with my walking foot and several different threads to give the quilting more texture.

Oh look! Blue Golf Shoes!

I’m looking forward to starting another project since I am doing another secret sewing pattern testing project. Fabric is pulled, and the fabric cutting has begun!

Until next time; have fun fondling fabric. I will be. Thank you for taking the time to read my post. 🥴 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

    1. Awe! Thank you Kathleen. I’m hoping they help. The Club is like most others in rural areas, feeling the pinch of changing demographics. My DH built the clubhouse 30 years ago before he was diagnosed with MS. Now his favorite (and only sport) is playing golf so it is important to me that the Club survives.
