Soul Searching Quilting Complete WIP Wednesday 4.7.21

I had another really productive week!  I completed the quilting on the quilt called Soul Searching.  It is also trimmed.  This quilt is my April OMG (one main goal).  I quilted it with a very dense pattern from Urban Elementz called Ba Da Bing.


Oh how I love the dense texture on this quilt.

I made this large, pieced yellow back in February when yellow was the color of the month for the RSC21.  It worked out great for this quilt.

This stripe looks great on the back with these two different sized gingham checks.  I love the rich texture.  It looks sort of tribal to me -- or like gears and swirls.

I finished the Patriotic Folk Animals quilt (pattern by Sandy Bonsib.)  You can read details here.

I finally finished a dark green Picadilly Circle block.  I made a few rail fence blocks too. 81/900

I opened the shoe box containing my Scrap Crystals project (pattern by Bonnie Hunter).  It's like greeting an old friend.  Now that I have this opened and I'm starting to sort it, I just want to keep going on it until it is a finished product.

I needed two more owls for my Owl's Well That Ends Well quilt that I started for the RSC19.  I didn't have dark green owls, but now I do.  Hooray for moving another quilt closer to a finish.

I now stand at 55 projects on my WIP list.

you will have no problem getting Soul Searching done by the end of April! You got it quilted fast! Did you and Owen go bike riding yesterday? It was so beautiful outside and today is going to be just as nice. It's too hot for me to walk at lunchtime now, but I enjoy my evenings digging in the yard.

You really got a lot done. I love your Soul Searching. Quilting just makes a piece come alive.

Kathy S. said...

Thank you, Linda. Owen and I did a countdown of school days yesterday. There are less than forty days of school left! Woohoo! Hopefully I'll have a couple more finishes before summer.

Kathy S. said...

It's gorgeous out today again! Windows are finally open in the bedrooms. Linens are washed and fresh. I guess you and I both will be having after dinner walks or bike rides. I already have that green polka dot binding made for this quilt. It should be finished in no time. Many random green plants transplanted last year are starting to pop up in the chicken yard. Let's see what they (and their duck friends) don't eat...

I've had this quilting design for a while but wasn't experienced enough to use it. I got a lot of experience on this quilt and really love the texture.
