Week 2: IGQuiltFest
NATIONAL QUILTING MONTH PHOTO CHALLENGE / #IGQuiltFest:
Are you following the photo challenge, hosted by Amy Ellis (AmysCreativeSide.com), posted to #IGQuiltFest. I don't have an Instagram account but I am participating by posting weekly photos (with captions) in this space.
DAY 4 - FAST FINISH
The berry and teal jelly roll became a strip quilt by following this "40 minute* scrap quilt with Valerie Nesbitt" video. The technique leaves the ends cut flush and no fabric to discard.
NOTE: I placed the strips in a colorwash pattern before sewing. You can see that they did not align as a colorwash. I would assemble much more randomly next time. I've cut as a Trip Around The World - to be posted on another day during this photo challenge.
*40 minute refers to sewing time only.
DAY 5 - NOTIONS
Many of my notions are stored in the colorful measuring tape pouch. The Ruler Boxes, from Temecula Quilt Co., are the perfect sizes for storing additional notions.
DAY 6 - SCRAPPY QUILT
This fluffy Scrappy Quilt feels like you're enveloped in a hug when used.
DAY 7 - CUTTING MAT
It may be time to get a larger cutting mat. This one is showing many years of use.
DAY 8 - STACKS
It's time to put stacks of fabric away in their colored bins.
DAY 9 - FINALLY FINISHED

DAY 10 - SOLIDS LOVE

From Amy's March 1st blog post:
IGQuiltFest celebrates the many different aspects of quilting, and is a great way to get to know other quilters online. There's no pressure to post EVERYDAY but it's definitely fun to post when you have the time.
