Twin quilts, that is! I'm happy to present Miss June and Miss July, my Project Linus quilts #6 and #7.
They are based on the Quick Strippie pattern from Mary Quilts, but I used different strips of fabric instead of just one print. And if you look closely, you'll see that these are all cat fabrics! Someday I'll tell the story of how I came to possess all this kitty fabric...
For the quilting, I did some random straight lines over the prints (in white thread) and stippling over the green/yellow strips (in green thread). Pretty much the same as I did for this one. I tried to be more methodical with the quilting, and they turned out a lot better than the one I quilted last week. I didn't even curse the batting too much (except when stray bits kept getting caught up in the walking foot - so annoying).
And here are the backs - pieced with 10.5" squares of novelty fabrics. Anytime I cut a novelty fabric, I cut some extras for the bin of backing squares. And when I get bored, I sew up a 5x6 back for the next PL quilt (or two, or three...).
So, let's see. Today is July 15 - that means I have 15 days to bask in the glory of being all caught up with my PL goal. Sweeeeet! I'm excited to concentrate on some personal projects for a few weeks.
