Well we have two quilts to show you for today’s Friday Finish…actually that’s not quite true as I can only show you this…
The quilts are all boxed up and mailed to “Quilty” magazine. Watch for them to be coming up in the Jan/Feb issue and the March/April issue. If you haven’t seen “Quilty” you’re missing a fun magazine. It’s a branch off of Fons and Porter and edited by Mary Fons. The magazine leans towards modern quilting.
Thus..you guessed it, Kelli and I sewed two quilts that we are classifying as modern. We resisted modern for a bit but then decided-what the heck why not try modern too??
I think more than anything with our sewing we don’t want to get stuck in a rut. I would hate to always be primitive, reproduction, 30’s, or modern. We want to be open and play with it all. With our short delve into modern quilting I do have to say, the machine quilting really makes or breaks a quilt. That put lots of pressure on me find ways to quilt the projects that is pleasing. I hope I did okay.
We have one other quilt that will be shipped out today. It’s for the upcoming fall issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks. We are so happy to have those quilts done with the deadlines met.
As long as we are talking about deadlines…we had four more quilts accepted to places all for 2014 so it looks like we have more deadline quilting to do. Thankfully those deadlines are a couple months away.
So how about you? Are you a modern, reproduction, 30’s or primitive quilter…or are you like us and want to keep your fingers in a little bit of it all?
