Three Quilts in Progress
Today is WHATCHA WORKING ON WEDNESDAY at Leslie's blog, My Country Home.
This week I am working on three quilts in progress, all of which are on my 2009 Sewing To Do List at the bottom of this blog.
The one up above is a Spiderman quilt for my grandson. I decided to use this Spiderman fabric in a whole piece top with borders added on. The borders are made from matching red and blue solid fabrics. If you look closely at the Spiderman fabric you can see white lines which are spider web lines, of course. I am going to put this quilt in my Ulmer Quilter and hand quilt along all these little white spider web lines. The backing will be the red, white and blue Patriotic fabric shown at the bottom of the picture.
Sometimes when I shop for fabric, the choices just jump out to me, as if God put them there for me that day. This fabric with the quilting lines already printed on there and the patriotic fabric which is sold this time of the year at a good price, are perfect for what I was wanting to do. Also, using the whole piece top will save lots of time and still make a very cute quilt!
My grandson will turn two the end of August, and this quilt will be his first twin size quilt as opposed to the several baby size quilts I have made for him in the past.
This is the progress in the little girl's leaders and enders quilt. The striped green and pink fabric with frogs will be the backing fabric.
For the little boy's leaders and enders quilt, I accidentally overestimated the number of blocks I would need and ended up with enough to make two!
Here are 4 large sections completed:
Lots of 7 inch squares ready to be sewn together
Fabrics to be used for the backing, borders and binding:
