Read All About It!

Welcome Quilt Festival Goers!! 
#103
Quilt Stats are 72"x60" and  I'd qualify it as a bed quilt (where it is cozily lazing around right now;) and home machine quilted oh and you could if you so pleased nominate for best quilt photography...Thanks!

Read All About It! Thats the name of the quilt! Why? Well its got a bunch of my *favorite* text prints like the old school handwriting, and architectural diagrams from cathedrals in Paris type thing. Also showcased Lakehouse Goods Seed Cataloque print. ~sigh~. I love that one. I am a gardener; must be why. Seeing words like Seeds, Cherries, and Flowers in a Farmer's Almanac-type style just makes my heart skip. And those flower head prints? Lovin' those too. The pattern is from this awesome book (and no, I'm not gettin' paid for that;)...Started this quilt awhile back and picked it back up after a hefty move to a new house. Wasn't as bad as I thought..(not the move...that was hard) but picking up a quilt long sequestered to WIP status. Sometimes it seems too hard to dive back in and that mental block just keeps growing and growing.But let me freakin' tell ya, I feel lighter now with it done. Like I can attack all my WIPs and */gasp/* start new projects! (doin the happy dance on that thought). Did some fun free motion quilting on it on my new sewing table...the one that my sewing machine actually sits in. I could finally bust out my Supreme Slider that I've had forever and occasionally would bring out and pet, before I had a surface to use it on. I am pleased to report it works like a dream. Thanks for droppin' by the ole bloggaroo. I'm in and out but would love to hear your thoughts on my quilt and lookin' forward to perusin' everyone elses' creations. Cheers!

  2. Your free motion quilting is so good it could be digital. I really like how you quilted this. The colors look great together--but then I like that cheddar color with nearly everything. I think its my fav!

  5. Greatest use of fabrics ever. Amazing that you used such prominent fabric lines and yet the quilt doesn't read that way at all, congrats you made it your own and it is fabulous!

  9. I am going to have to look into Lakehouse Goods Seed Cataloque print.
    Love have you used the Echo line, in it. I have all of that line but haven't incorporated them into a quilt yet. This is great!
    Great name for the quilt, too!

  15. I'm very impressed with the FMQ and your use of the text prints. I have a bunch but haven't found the right project for them??? I also love how modern it is - my hubby would even let me put that in the living room!!
