This lovely quilt came off my machine today. I’m not sure of the pattern as I was not told, I’m sure its from a book that is on the market now……
I tried something new in the center…….I’m not a fan of basic puzzle piece meander and I try to avoid it whenever possible. Lately I’ve been doing the basic meander and then going back over the design offsetting the second pass slightly and it gives the effect of a ribbon.
Today, I took this ribbon meander one step further. I added a double leaf to a few of the spots that cross over the first line of stitching.
..in the second picture on the right, I’ve added the ribbon work with the leaves added. I didn’t add leaves on all the crossovers just every third or fourth depending on the amount of space I had. Please excuse my drawing ability as I can’t draw on paper…….but boy can I quilt!!!!
This is a new to me design…….I don’t think I’ve seen it before but in case its out there already please let me know who did it first so I can give credit. If I was fortunate to do it first, here’s your permission to use this all you want and you don’t have to give me credit, just enjoy it. Its fast easy and very forgiving.
Just incase your tired of hearing about a quilting adventure……..I also bake bread……here’s breakfast tomm morning……..Cinnamon Bread.
This is my Mother’s basic sweet bread dough recipe. As you know I’m baking my way thru my mother’s recipe box. Stay tuned for the recipe in a couple of days….I really like this method because the kneading in done in the bowl and the dough is so soft and easy to work with. I made in in a loaf pan tonight in the interest of time as I’m running out of energy fast tonight.
later………Mrs baking quilter
