Projects Quilts


I have had such fun playing with Pat Bravo’s new Summerlove collection.  This summer-like week was the perfect time to work with these beautiful fabrics.  I moved my sewing machine beside my porch doors and opened them wide and all that fresh warm spring air breezed on by as I was sewing….cheesy, I know, but it really was a great sewing day. =)

I received this wonderful stack of fabric to play with from–the fabrics are Summerlove, new Pure Elements, new Oval Elements–all Art Gallery Fabrics.  This fabric:

along with the fabulous way Art Gallery Displays the pictures of their fabric lines was the basis for my quilt design.

I chose 12 of my favorite prints from Summerlove and added in two Oval Elements prints to make this quilt which features {12} 16″ appliqued blocks.

I used Superior MonoPoly invisible thread for the straight stitch raw edge applique.  This was the first time I used invisible thread for applique–I am happy with the results.  I opted not to use it in my bobbin–which worked fine–I found I didn’t even need to adjust my tension.

Summerlove should be hitting stores any day now–I noticed both Fat Quarter Shop & Hawthorne Threads will be getting in yardage of this line.
