I love to get pictures of reader’s quilts.
You might remember a bit ago I made a Country Threads’ quilt as a wedding present. This one….Read about mine here.
Mine was inspired by Mary’s quilt…this one. Here’s the link that tells how to make the quilt.
I recently got a note from a blog reader : Brenda in KY writes….
I finished a quilt that was inspired by the one you featured on your blog by Mary at Country Threads. I couldn’t find a name for it, so I just named it Country Threads. Mary made hers with a jelly roll. I used 10″ squares to make mine since I am in a 10″ block exchange with my guild. So I cut each 10″ square into four pieces, each 2-1/2″ x 10″. I loved making it. It went together so fast. I make alot of charity quilts, so I’ll definitely be using this pattern again. This quilt was a Christmas gift. I machine quilt all my quilts on my domestic machine. I quilted this one with a gold cotton variegated thread with an allover design I call fractured glass–with a few stars thrown in. Here’s a couple pics of it. I enjoy reading your blog.”
Want to see Brenda’s version? Here it is….
I really like it. It’s a great balance of color….
…and look at the quilting! I can’t imagine doing a quilt this big on a domestic machine. I really admire for doing that. In my time a tried that a couple times and never learned the secret to keeping wrinkles from the backing.
I do love this as a charity quilt or a quick project. It’s an awesome scrap busting quilt too.
Thanks for sharing your finished quilt Brenda and a huge shout out and thanks to Mary over at Country Threads’ Chicken Scratch blog for sharing the great idea. I know Mary said that she was wondering how this would look bigger and with other fabrics….Now she can see too!
