A Quilt from Across the Continent

I started this blog 4 months ago not only for my love of fabric and creating beautiful things from it, but also to make daunting projects -such as piecing together an entire quilt top- not seem so daunting. Anyway, I feel a step closer to accomplishing that as of last week. =) I received this beautiful picture of a quilt that Melissa from Kings County, New Brunswick in Canada made. This was Melissa’s very first quilt, and she used the Cuttin’ Corners Quilt tutorial as a guide. I absolutely adore the color choices she used. The wavy-lines quilting compliments the shapes on the quilt top, and the best part is you can use a straight-stitch on your sewing machine; simply move the quilt top in long S’s under the presser foot.
Melissa also used the Quick Quilt Binding tutorial to help finish the project. It turned out beautiful! And it looks so soft.
Thanks again, Melissa, for sending me these photos and for encouraging me to continue my posts. 🙂

    Wow – it looks as if she's been quilting for years! I could easily see that quilt selling for top dollar by professionals. Congrats to Melissa for a job well done! Let's hope she continues to pursue her natural talent for quilting. (:

    Jera, do you quilt just in the rain or also when it's sunny? 🙂

    Aww thanks everybody! Your compliments feel great! It really came together quickly, 2 days, which I was very pleased with, Jera's tutorials made it all possible. And I will continue quilting, I like designer cotton too much not to 😉

    very nicely done. I almost immediately recognised the layout as the cutting corners set-up, because I just finished doing a small version of it yesterday, using 2.5 inch squares instead of 10 inch.
    Thanks Jera for the pattern, and thanks Melissa for sharing your pics
