A very hot Kaffe – vibrant and bright!
Using domestic machine quilting rulers are fun and fast. This small 9 block quilt has been waiting for inspiration to strike – that’s okay, there’s a few of them quietly laying around, but this one called out to be done.
So UFO #2 for 2019 is finished!
Using Isacord thread in a matching colour lets the fabric do all the talking. After all, trying to compete with Kaffe is a tall ask!

So a more subdued fabric on the back allows the quilting to be seen.

Oops! a tangled thread right in the middle of the back of the quilt – oh well, better finished than perfect!
This small offering is off to a new home, gladly waving goodbye after being so patient to be finished!
Which one will be next I wonder?
Finally got there!
The pattern came together quite easily – just time consuming, definitely not something to make in a weekend! Well the top yes, but a whole quilt – no.
I use 505 Spray Basting – quick, efficient, and easy, as long as there’s floor space!
The decisions of what threads to use, the quilting pattern, and method of quilting also take time. With this one, it was two threads only, with some domestic machine ruler quilting in the large patches, and some free motion in the coloured patches.

Curves to make a melon shape with the rulers, along with a straight edge for in the ditch, and spirals for free motion.
At last, it was finished! An enjoyable process once the panic over ‘What will I make’ was over!
Unbeknownst to me, Sarah has a jungle themed nursery, so it was a hit!
Oh Dear! Just heard there are two more coming up!
Decisions again …
