Switching my calendar over from February to March is one of my favorite times of the year. It could be because we have 4 birthdays to celebrate within 4 weeks…so basically all I eat the month of March is cake, and by April all I feel like eating is kale and carrot sticks. Or not.
I want to get crackin’ on some new quilts and designs but before I do that, I’ve vowed to finish up some oldies hanging in my closet. First up was this Summer Lucky quilt.
I spray basted this one and free motion quilted it with my Juki. The Juki quilts like a dreamboat. I did a comparison a year ago between my Bernina 440 and the Juki…and even though the Bernina has the stitch regulator for quilting, I’d choose to quilt on the Juki any day.
I machine bound it (tutorial here) with my go-to coral/pink Rose Bella Solid. I just stuck this one in the washer….it’s going to be so beautiful crinkly and soft!
This quilt uses my Lucky pattern, but instead of using an all white background I cut the background from lots of low volume fabrics.
