Dotty medallion top finished

image

It came out double sized. I like it a lot! It was fun going around and and around. I need to pin it out tomorrow and start quilting. I really need to get over myself with the sandwiching of quilts. I have about 10 or 12 tops to quilt. Of course tops take up a lot less space than quilts and everyone has a bunch of quilts on their bed. I give away quite a few every year as well. Guess my kids will have to figure it out! I picture the giant garage sale it will take to clear out my sewing room when I finally give it up and I guess I better start giving more quilts to friends and family. I’m just insecure enough that I am afraid people won’t like them or will garage sale them while I’m still around to find out!

Quilting on the treadle

This is a 65 by 65 inch quilt made with fused on birds. I don’t trust fusableĀ  so I am quilting heavily. Its sort of baby sized but I don’t have a baby in mind. I just wanted to play with these little bird appliques and experiment with a white back ground. I must have had fun because in the last I was thinking it was going to be a wall hanging.

Accuquilt bird quilt

These cute little birds were cut with the die cutter. A 5 by 5 charm square fits one bird so it is easy to get a lot of fabric variety.

Now I have to decide if this is a mini quilt or if I am making more blocks to make it bigger….
