This is a follow up to the post Slashing the Stash with TTQH.
Terry the Quilting Husband (TTQH) is ready to make another quilt and this time he wants to make a quilt for our bed – and we have a king-size bed.
He has an ambitious plan, after raiding my stash of homespun fabrics (brushed cotton fabrics woven in a primitive home style weave, usually in plaids) for a very large quilt!
He discovered this book, Slash Your Stash Quilts, while I was thinning out my quilt booklets in November. I had this one slated for donation but he wanted to keep it and make the Twinklers pattern with homespuns in my stash (he was actually trying to slash my stash!).
We reviewed the original pattern he chose in depth which led to him changing his mind. He is going to make another pattern in the book that does not have all those “points”:
I helped him cut 225 6.5″ x 6.5″ squares and he has sorted them into 25 nine patch sets:
Here he is playing (spinning) with some designs with the pile-o-homespuns on the large design wall in the hallway:
And they now are waiting by his sewing machine for him to start sewing…
More updates as the quilt progresses…
A quick follow up on the post Additional on “Additional Conversations” .
Originally I was going to hand quilt my large art quilt from recycled clothing, Additional Conversations:
I decided to “quilt it by check” and have my friend Betty Anne, professional long-arm quilter, do the quilting.
Here is the quilt laid out on the bed as I try to make sure I made the quilt back wide enough (using tan colored Peppered Cotton).
Betty Anne and I discussed an overall strategy for her quilting on the piece and I cannot wait to see her wonderful work!
