It occurred to me today that I completely forgot Quilting For Good Tuesday last week - sorry!! But hopefully that means you've got lots to share from the last two weeks!
I want to show you a quilt that I worked on this week - I needed something traditional for an older woman with cancer, and fortunately, a lady at church had just donated a beautiful fan pattern quilt top that just fit the bill!
The original donated top was huge - this is only a part of it. There is at least enough to make one more quilt from it, and maybe two! I did a little creative seam ripping and took out this six by six block section, added a pretty floral border, and this pretty quilt was born!
I had fun with the quilting on this one - since I'm out of batting and can't get to as many quilts as usual this week, I decided to play around with my new long arm machine, Jolene!
I did petals in the quarter circle, squiggly vines in the fans, and organic echo quilting in the negative space. It really went pretty quickly, considering - and it was lots of fun!!
|A pieced back - and isn't it pretty with the sun shining through|
showing off the fans?
And now it's your turn!
Show us what you've been working on this week -

It's all Quilting For Good!
