My week on Instagram

For anyone not on Instagram, here's my second weekly round up of my week on Instagram where I'm @lilysquilts.  So first up this week is a quilt which was in Love Patchwork & Quilting last month made from Anna Maria Horner's Pretty Potent line.


A close up photo shows the quilting which was straight lines either side of the seams using a bright pink Aurifil 50wt for extra bada boom.  


Second up was this Lone Star Circle quilt I made for Krista Hennebury's new book, Make It, Take It which contains loads of lovely projects for you to make on retreat or take to retreat and will be coming out next month.

 

And finally there is a little sneak peek of a quilt I made this week using Suffolk Garden by Brie Harrison for Dashwood Studio.  I was showing the different effects you can get on a quilt by denser or looser quilting.  Looser quilting, shown on the left, makes for a softer, smooshier quilt whereas denser quilting gives a more structured, stiffer but, I think, more professional finish.  But really it's just a matter of personal taste! 


As last week, please let me know if you're on Instagram and what your name is over there so I can go and find your photo stream.

    Lovely overview of your week! Would love to get so much quilting done in a week. I have been playing with EQ7, some successes, some failures, but in the end all is well!
    Bye bye!

  9. I love your quilts. I tried making a Lone Star quilt just a few months back but didnt have a great pattern and so gave up, finding it too difficult to match the points. Think I will take a look at that book you recommend!
