Scraptastic Tuesday

Scraptastic Tuesday   is going on over at Mrs Sew & Sow.  Check things out over there.

Last week I showed the Batik Leaf Quilt.  So excited today when I dropped in to see the projects and found I was a gift certificate winner!! Check out the options that come with the gift certificate from Green Fairy Quilts.  

The latest project is machine quilting on the DSM a quilt made by a lovely lady from church.  She had a machine quilter at least 10-15 years ago finish some of her pieces while her and her husband would winter in Texas.  This quilt was slated to be quilted when they no longer could make the trip.
 Here is the close up of the blocks.

The sashing and borders need to be finished.  Below is the pattern that was slated for in the sashing.  

I am afraid that enough of the fullness won't be taken up with the quilting.  The outside border will get the Baptist fan design. This is my go to design for the outer border.  
Any ideas to help quilt out some of the fullness.  I suppose a meander might take up more of the fullness than the loops.

Linky Tuesday is also running at Freemotion on the River

Just Another Quilter


  1. That really is a pretty quilt, and I'm sure you'll do a nice job on the quilting for her. ---"Love"

  2. It's a lovely quilt and I think you'll need a lot of quilting - a closer design, to manage that fullness.
