Lint Catcher

Here are a few pictures of the black quilt I’m working on that will be in our local quilt show this November.  I started this sometime last year just as something to do and because I love these really cute dresden plates.

I had a bundle of 6 inch strips in these soft pastels that I thought would be beautiful together.  Than surprise, surprise a Kaffe Fasset fabric with little flowers became the perfect centers for these dresen plates.  Even more shocking was KF cabbages became the leaves.

I know I have a problem with not using too much color or prints but that’s just the way I’m made.  I blame it on the ugly 70’s clothes I wore as a child!

So this quilt is quite a departure from my norm, but I love this quilt! I love that everything, ecxept the flange which came from Lynn Wilder (sew’n in wild oaks, blogspot).  I designed the tiny dresdens, the layout and the border.  I feel happy when I look at it!
The quilting has begun.  Simple ditching to start with than some sparkle threads that will hopefully show up on the black.  I may regret the use of the sparkle thread after I try it out but I’m hopeful at this point.

I’m just going to work on this a little bit everyday.  It’ll be better on my back and keep me from getting bored and treating it like a chore.  I want to love this quilt all the way to the binding, not hate it before the borders.  Also I want to work on other projects, like that new hexie quilt.  I can not wait to play with that!

Have a wonderful Friday and hope you get some creative time this weekend.

Take care my friends, Brandie
