A Red and White Kona cotton "Southern Sky" is done.
Trying new techniques, I used two layers of batting and densely quilted the white areas to raise the red quilting.
I washed and blocked the finished quilt and it has softened a little, but with the quilting and double batting, not as cuddly as I like -- my quilts are used a lot, so maybe after a few more washings, it will help.
I am so excited to have finished the latest mystery by Bonnie Hunter, Quiltville. The Grand Illusion Quilt was introduced through clues beginning the day after 2014 Thanksgiving. This one has already been delivered to the 2015 Relay for Life Team (Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana) and will be gifted Saturday night. I always wonder who wins these quilts and hope they know how special one of Bonnie's designs are -- after all, Bonnie is Hollywood among quilters!
After a long absence from posting (very special projects behind the scenes), I am looking forward to joining Sarah at her Whoop Whoop Party. See you there!
It still amazes me how fast this little quilt "Whips" up! This makes #5 that I have made of Licorice Whip. (Black Cat Creations). In less than a day, the blocks were done....when I return home from work tonight, I'll sew them together and load it up for quilting. It may take me longer to think about the quilting design than to finish it....With just two colors, I will be changing thread. Will do all of the red first, then go back to the top with the white.
As usual, I am working on a few quilts. Those with deadlines are slipped in here and there, while I take my time with others. Looking forward to seeing the others at the Monday Linkup with Judy at Patchwork Times
