Of coarse I must start with my finish as it is so exciting! I will warn you that this is a little picture heavy because I am in LOVE with it!
I finished my Regatta Quilt!
Yesterday my hubby and I headed over to our local Lake Park and did a photo shoot.
What could be a better background for a Regatta quilt?
At first I thought I would piece my backing using all the cut offs from making this quilt until I found this fabric! It is the perfect colors!
Here you can see a bit of the front with the back! Thanks to the breeze!
Here is a detail shot of the straight line quilting. I did 3 straight lines across the quilt in each strip. I did not quilt in the ditch which gives it a nice simple pattern on the back.
The binding is made using mostly the navy color with a little of 2 others darker colors in the quilt.
My sweet Nellie is enjoying the sunshine and the quilt!
Here it is in all its glory!
The pattern is Regatta by Daniela at Block M Quilts and I followed the QAL at Home Sewn By Us. It finished at 57" x 74". This is my 3rd finish for 2018!
My Temperature quilt now has 4 rows completed (with a few in the 5th row done).
As your can see we had slightly warmer temperatures indicated by the greens and yellows! The Hope of Spring🌷🌷🌷!
What's new on my design wall? I've been playing with the alphabet!
These letters are paper pieced and are 5" square done in reds from my stash.
I've been playing with the layout. Not sure what it will look like but I will be doing lowercase letters next!
What's new on your design wall?
I'm linking up to Show off Saturday over at Sew Can She.
