It’s been awhile and I apologize

Spring and summer are quite busy for me with my regular job – I had 6 commercial high rises to inspect and 3 residential high rises.  This just means my weekends are a little busy and I don’t get a lot of quilting done.  And of course, there are the times I am on firework shoots (most fun and most dangerous).

But while shopping in Quilter’s Garden in Anaheim, I found this great fabric and I immediately thought “I could do another Magic Slice and Dice”.

This is the quilt after completing the squares and sewing into rows.  There are 2 ladies in the So Calif area that worked out a pattern that when sewn looks like this.  (top pic) Then you make 2 slices, resew just 2 seams and this is what you get. (Bottom pic)

It takes on a whole new look.  It appears that it is sewn on the diagonal with triangles on the sides.  I have made this pattern about 8 other times.  In fact, this is one pattern that you can use the ugliest, busiest fabric and it comes out absolutely gorgeous.  It only took 3 hours to quilt on the long arm.

The back fabric is black and I used gold thread on the back so the quilting would really stand out.  Plus it kind of makes it a reversible quilt.  Who gets this one?  Who knows.  It may be a raffle quilt or a gift.  I just quilt because God has given me this talent.  Plus if my hands are busy, then they aren’t stuffing food in the mouth.

Thanks for reading – have a blessed holiday season.
