I Joined the 21st Century!

 Happy Sunday! I confess, I have not touched any sewing this weekend. I am going to pin the Modern Herringbone Baby Quilt after I finish this post. I did pick up this quilt from my LQS on Friday afternoon. I made it several years ago when my friend still owned the shop. I do not recall what the pattern is called, but I made it from the reproduction section and it was my first time using my Pfaff for the machine appliqué. The quilt shop sold to a new owner who I did not care for and she is selling the shop to someone else, so I thought it was time to get it back. After several unpleasant visits, I finally got this beauty back. It is pretty good sized 65 x 75 inches after washing.
 I  am not sure who quilted it, but each block has a large rose and the sashing has leaves quilted. The small cornerstones also have tiny flowers quilted in them too.
 The four corners each have a rose quilted in them and they show very well in the black with white polka dots.
The flowers, berries, birds, and vines in the borders have been quilted around highlighting their detail. I like the black and white polka dot for the binding. I took these quick pictures with my new iPhone 6S this afternoon--I finally upgraded my dumb slide out phone. This phone takes much better quality pictures than my iPad! Now, I may just have to explore a new frontier--like Instagram. Have a great week!

  1. Your quilt is lovely. I'm glad you were able to get it back. For some reason I am partial to yellow and polka dots in a quilt. I have no idea why.

  2. Lovely quilt, those borders...cute! My husband still uses a slider phone he's had for about 7 years. His thoughts are "If ain't broke don't fix it!" But his friends send pictures for him to my newer phone. Have fun playing with your new phone!

  9. Oh I know...I upgraded my phone a while back when my grandson was born and I was missing out on all the photos and facetime fun. No regrets!! NOw for that new shop owner...so wierd, same thing happened to our store. The new owner is so unfriendly. Her inventory soooooo low, it's hard to support her. (Actually I don't) But sure miss have a quilt shop near by to meet friends and take classes.

  10. PS: I checked out the book you are reading and it sounds like the perfect summer read. How do you find your books...as you always seem to find the good ones.
