The quilting on the QOV went very quickly so I finished off the binding and label today. The quilt has even been washed and is ready for donation! This is for the Quilt Studio 40 Quilts Service Project as a male QOV.
As a recap, this quilt was made with Judy Laquidara's April Quilt For an Hour project. When I saw her project materials list I thought that this would be a good project to use the two primary fabrics that were in my stash. They were quite expensive hand-painted fabrics that I purchased several years ago at the Houston Quilt Festival. When I pre-washed them for a project the faded terribly. I didn't want to use them for the original project at that point and put them back into the stash. I thought Judy's design and these fabrics were good for a male QOV. The fabrics for the 9-patch blocks were from the same vendor - they were parts of 9" sample packs. The backing fabric also came from stash. It's not the prettiest quilt I have ever seen, but having worked in the QOV booth at MQX, I think it will hold it's own among other QOV quilts. It is very soft and cuddly and that's what counts most I think!
Total stash use: over 10 yards!
Here's the front:
And a view of the quilting texture. I used the Square Spiral pantograph because I think it's a good general texture for a man's quilt. The thread is King Tut in the needle and Masterpiece in the bobbin. I like the Masterpiece and King Tut together, I use that combination often. I also use Masterpiece almost exclusively for piecing.
