A Quilt for Fabric Crush

I’m excited to say that I will be teaching a beginner quilting class at Fabric Crush, a local fabric boutique in Wallingford, Seattle. It’s a beautiful store filled with bright and fresh fabrics so check out the link, even if it’s just for some eye candy. Anyway, the quilt above is what I will be teaching. It will be hung at Fabric Crush as a display quilt to hopefully lure people into registering for the class. 🙂

Above is when I prepped the quilt on my Imperial Quilting frame for some quilting action. Do you notice the sparkly fabric? It’s by Michael Miller, and it’s the first print that caught my eye (I chose all the other other prints around the pretty sparkly one).

I decided to quilt squiggles because I thought it helped soften all the rigid square and rectangle patchwork.

I finished binding the quilt around half time during Super Bowl Sunday. 🙂 Time well spent!

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂 Wish me luck at my very first quilting class (tentatively planned for March!).

Happy Quilting!

    I can't remember how I happened upon your blog, but I'm so glad I did. What a beautiful quilt. If I still lived in the Northwest I'd definitely take your class 😉 I lived in Bellingham for 3 years…a very long time ago. I SO miss the friendly people and beautiful surroundings…but not the rain 🙁 Have fun teaching!!

    Would you come to my local quilt shop and teach this one? It's not (too) far away, just west of Brisbane in Australia(*#*#?!?)Bahahaha.
    Seriously, I am so loving your fresh style, I really wish I lived in Seattle. Are the fabrics from a particular line or have you chosen them yourself?

    Cheers, Tania.

    I am a fairly new quilter and am wondering how I would get a pattern for this quilt the size of a lap blanket. I want to make one for my grandaughter. If you could please email me at marytyson43@yahoo.com I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
