Met My Triangle Goal!

The triangles on my Jane Stickle quilt are quilted!! I reached my goal to get them quilted before Christmas. Woo-Hoo!!


I am going to find the book today and see what quilting is in the scallops and what color blue the binding is. I've never done a scallop binding before.
Someone had asked to see the whole thing the last time I posted about it. It has been about 10 years since I drew on the scallops- seriously I think I used a plate! I don't even remember now. I'm not sure what it will look like once I remove the basting and unfold the edges. Sort of like opening a Christmas present!! LOL You never know what you are going to find!!
I thought I'd show you one of my old favorite snuggle quilts. Millennium Garden by Jan Patek made in 2003. I put the brushed side of some cotton on the back so it's a little like flannel. It has quite a bit of machine quilting too so it makes a good winter quilt.

Have a fantastic weekend and week!! I'm leaving town for a girls retreat on Monday. It will include good friendship, sewing and a bit of wine.....

  12. I could not figure out what scallops you were talking about because the edges look straight to me. Then I read that you have the backing folded over the edges. Now it makes sense. I am in love with your quilt.

    I have the Millenium Garden pattern set sitting on the back of my sewing machine cabinet. I have a bundle of Brannock and Patek fabric that I am going to attempt to use for the applique. I hope I can make it work. You made yours quite a while back. I like quilts with the brushed cottons or flannel on the back. It makes for a soft, cozy and warm feeling. My very favorite quilt to cover up with has flannel on the back.

  15. Your DJ is wonderful. Allow plenty of time to do the binding. A scalloped binding is not a quick job. It is lovely to see the Millenium quilt made in light colours. Very nice.

  17. That is so beautiful and so much work went into it, I need to learn to be more patient so I can make large pieced quilts.

  22. Thanks for showing the whole quilt! I hope you did a victory dance or dance of joy as you finished up your triangles--or at least let out a few whoops! Feels so good to accomplish a goal.
    Love that snuggle quilt, too!

  23. Your DJ is lovely. Looking forward to seeing how you do with the scalloped edge and border. I'm guessing you'll be able to finish it with ease.
