Quilting My Quilt Sampler quilt

This week I have been quilting My Quilt Sampler quilt. This is the first quilt using my new Babylock Jazz sewing machine. I call him Jazzy. I'm still training Jazzy. I had him for almost 2 months ( had to replace Estante). But with a more practice, I'm sure I will have him trained...😉. Anyway, I'm please with the outcome so far. 


I really love quilting feathers. You will see a lot of this in many forms. So, I will get back to quilting. Now, SEW to make someone HAPPY!

My Quilt Sampler WIP

I finally finished piecing the top. My original plan was to not have a border. But as you can see, it was screaming "add a border, please". What do you think???



So, a border it was. As I went to work in EQ7, I tried out several types of border. But these two were my favorites.


I decided to go with the Piano Key Border.  I decided to it with the theme of the quilt; using blocks I never sewn before. I always want to do a piano key border but always opting out.
Now, I need to piece my backing and get it ready for quilting.

Let go sew to make someone HAPPY!

My Quilt Sampler UFO

My Quilt Sampler




This is the progress of my latest UFO. I've given it the name "My Quilt Sampler". I will need to go to the store this weekend to purchase some sashing and border/binding fabrics to complete it. I'm glad I decided to finish this quilt. I love the colors. I'm using EQ7 to design a finish layout; which will be post when completed. So, what UFO(s) have you been working on lately?

Let's go Sew and make someone HAPPY!
