The quilt is rolled on each end. I mark my quilts with light colored pencil that gently rubs off or comes off in the wash. I’ll show you my box of quilting stencils I have collected over the years in another post.

The Next Quilt On Deck

P1040709

The Next Quilt on Deck to Be Quilted is a Shadow Box Wall-Hanging!

The Shadow Box Quilt Pattern came from a book called, Country Quilts in a Day:  Using Strip Quilting & Other Speed Techniques by Fran Roen. I love the title of the book:  Country Quilts in a DAY…it never happened that way for me, but it sure has been fun trying to sew quilt tops together in a day!

I sewed this top together over 20 years ago!  Oh My!

Warmer Days

Warmer Days Mean Quilting Can Be Done on the Deck!

This is a picture of the Clorax Pen Vacation Quilt on the back deck.  I have finished quilting this one!

I have 3 different sets of C-Clamps and various sizes and lengths of pine boards, and a large collection of quilting thumb tacks I use to fit any size, large or small, quilt in a frame. I sometimes have three different quilts set in their quilt frames to work on at any one time.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

The quilt is still in the frame after it was finished being quilted~!

P1080036

I am setting the quilt free of the frame by taking the C-clamps off of the corners of the wood and removing the large push pins.

P1080040

The little quilt is completely out of the frame, and on the table before the extra fabric is trimmed off and the edging is sewn in place.

The finished quilt is 23.5″ x 18.”  This is what the quilt looks like after the edging is sewn in place and hand tacked down on the back and then washed!  I love the antique shrinking look!

What’s New In the Quilt Frame?

P1080049

I put a Little Americana Flannel Quilt in the frame today!

P1080050

I sewed this 26″ x 22″ top together in the late 90’s, back when I was still practicing the Ohio Star pattern found on the  left corner. You can tell that I was still new to what I was doing, because the points of the inner star are not even!

Nevertheless, it’s time has come to be quilted.

Happy Friday to you!

I used a chicken wire quilt stencil from The Stencil Company from Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania on the last area that needed quilted.

Being as I grew up in Western Pensyl-tucky, it was a joy to receive the 6 stencils I ordered wrapped in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette Newspaper.  The Stencil Company was quick with the order and receiving the patterns so fast aided me in finishing this quilt!  A link to The Stencil Company website can be found HERE.

I am working on the multicolored edging and will post a completely finished picture soon!

Hope the pieces of life are coming together for you!
