I did sew last week, especially yesterday. But none of it shows up on the design wall. I finally got around to making the back for the Fat Quarter Stars Quilt, so it's ready to be sent out for quilting. I started cutting fabric for block B of the Sofa Quilt and am now ready to start making the flying geese. The label was sewn on what's been known on the blog as the Purple and Yellow quilt last week, but I didn't get it downstairs for any photographs. That finally happened Saturday.
Pattern by Judy Turner and Margaret Rolf
From the Book "Successful Scrap Quilts"
The binding is yellow, the back is a purple and yellow floral that goes pretty well with the colors on the front.
I love the all over floral motif that Trudy used for the quilting.
Isn't that pretty? She used a variegated purple thread for the quilting.
I finished this quilt over a month ago, but was really struggling for a name. KT left a comment on an earlier post suggesting Johnny Jump Ups, a common name for a viola (here's a photo). I wasn't familiar with this flower, so I did a bit of research. I didn't mark the site unfortunately, but it noted that one variation on the common name was Jump Up and Kiss Me Jack. One of My Guy's nicknames is Jack and since this quilt is staying with me, the quilt name is "And Kiss Me Jack".
I had a bit of fun with the label and liked the way it came out, though it looks a bit wonky. This quilt was started in 2006, it was the next to oldest quilt on the UFO list. It's nice to finally get it finished.
That's it for my design wall this week. Hop over to Judy's Patchwork Times to see more design walls.
