STARRY NIGHT BY SEW KIND OF WONDERFUL

 Christine, Jeanette's daughter, has joined the Inch Worm Fabric team, I think she is going to try to blog for Jeanette.  I am excited, I get to use all the awesome fabrics in the store and Christine gets to blog about them.

I will say that when I was in her store I noticed that she had a fat quarter bundle of "Anne of Green Gables" fabric.   Below are the fabrics ..... aren't they wonderful?


Last year I finished the "Starry Night" top, I was wanting to do some fancy quilting.  I kept waiting and waiting....moving the top from one place to another.  I know all of you out there do not do that....  Actually, I was kinda nervous to do ruler work and also, I knew that it would take me forever and I have so many other things I want to do....was that a whine?


So I decided to swirl it.  Let me tell you, even swirling it took a lot of time and bobbins, I went over 12 bobbins, lost count after the 12.



I convinced my son to hold it up for me.  I sooooo Love it.  I will tell ya, the fabrics look kinda dull but they are not....they scream brightness.



Rainy and cold today.

Beautiful quilts. I love your fabrics and colors for "Starry Night". Your swirls have always been beautiful and a FMQ motif I've been a wee bit jealous as I still can't quilt decent swirls, but I am now comfortable with ruler work. We really need to get together for quilting one day.

Woohoo for a finish. I will say when I do ruler work I procrastinate like crazy finishing a quilt Um the quilt on my quilter has been there for 8 months with 2 passes so far. Love the colors in the Anne of Green Gables fabrics.

Love your starry night quilt! How big is it ?? I think about making one but am not sure what I would do with it, but maybe I could get into seasonal quilts. Fun to see your niece helping your sister at her store. I hope you all have fun!

That is such an adorable quilt! Wow! You used lots of thread! I just finished a top that I feel like I definitely used that many bobbins but I did mine quilt as you go!. So cute! I love the texture of all those swirls. K- lkw2x6-apq@yahoo.com
