15 Minutes of Play – Quilted
Oh my gosh. I love quilting.
Hum… I guess after the 6th year of running a sewing/quilting blog, that might be a bit redundant.
But seriously. I was lucky enough to get to quilt my 15 Minutes of Play scrap quilt on my mom’s longarm?Handi Quilter. If you haven’t flipped through the book, 15 Minutes of Play by Victoria Findlay Wolfe, I highly recommend it.
This is the largest quilt I have ever quilted for myself. It took about 3 hours or so. I went with an edge-to-edge swirly design. That is a free motion quilting technical term, edge-to-edge swirly. *wink wink* The top is just “floating” which means it isn’t rolled on a bar at all. (In case you were wondering why it was hanging down.)
Holy smokes it was hard to see the thread on some of those fabrics. WOWSA.
Since every color is in the quilt, it was really really really hard to narrow down a fabric for binding. So…
I picked every color. I used 9 pieces of 7 different striped fabrics. Commitment Issues. =)
LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out.
The quilt has all sorts of fabrics that remind me of all kinds of projects. I made the quilt for myself – which is kinda unusual – but its gonna look great on my bed! It was tricky to grab a picture of the whole thing. It is 100″ x 70″
The binding worked out. Loving the every-color shade of every-color I picked out.
