Tennessee Waltz Quilt finished

I decided to make the TW quilt Twin size.  I'll give it to one of my grand daughters who was born in Tennessee.  I pieced and quilted it on my Bernina 750 (my workhorse) I love this machine.  I washed it so it would go ahead and puff up.  Soon you will see another Twin quilt made with the same fabrics, however I'm using Road To Oklahoma pattern.

Tennessee Waltz Quilt Top finished and sandwiched

You all know I love LIME GREEN.  Well, my friend Barbara inspired me to make the Tennessee Waltz Quilt.  I had purchased some bright yellow fabric from a friend, and of course, it screamed add lime green with it.  Here's what I came up with.  I'm giving it to one of my Granddaughters who was born in Tennessee.  I'll machine quilt it on my domestic sewing machine

Jacobean finished

I finished my Jacobean quilt. I started the first piece of applique on July 6, 2014. I combined 3 of Patricia B. Campbell's patterns and even designed one of the blocks myself. It's needleturn applique and I also hand quilted it. I've added beads and crystals. Used batiks and Kaffe's fabrics. The background fabric is a yellow batik. I used Ombre fabric for the vines.

Top together

I got the top together on Monday.  What a challenge.  Since the squares were all different size and shapes it was something else.  Quilting it by the square also added to the challenge, but I prayed alot and it's together.  I'm sewing the back sashing together now.  Then I have to add the outside border, same fabric as the front sashing, then quilt those and it will be finished.  I checked and I started appliquing this one July 6, 2014....oh yes and I still have to add beads and crystals.  Oh boy, still lots to do on this one, but it certainly is further along that it was.....

Jacobean going together

Well, I almost have the Jacobean together.  since I'm quilting it "lap quilting" style it makes it different to put together.  Challenging I would say.....I hope to get it together today, then I have to echo quilt into the sashing and finish "blinging" it.....I love this quilt....
hopefully I will show completed pictures very soon
