Central Park Quilt

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

This quilt top was made from the other half of a Central Park Jelly Roll. The Citrus Sunshine Quilt was made from the first half. The solid is Kona Stone. I designed the quilt from a pattern I saw on Pinterest, with  some changes. I think it is fun. 
This will be Quilted on the Beast, my new, to me Brother PQ1300. That is MY dream machine!.

Quilted Wall Hanging for Sewing Room

Special Gift

I finished a gift for a special friend just before Christmas but, unfortunately, I haven't seen her to give it to her. (Hope she doesn't read this, she usually doesn't visit blogland, LOL.) 
We work together and have been alternating a couple of days off during the holidays. 
She keeps me sane at out crazy job and is my quilting/sewing buddy, what more could you ask???

I found these wonderful, free paper pieced letters, designed by Dori Hawk at 
"The Quilter Community" online. The link to her alphabet quilt is: 

She is very generous to share her talent with the quilting community. 

I wanted to make a small wall hanging for my friend's sewing room. 
The blocks originally were about 6 inches square but I enlarged them to 8". 
The wall hanging measures approx: 18" x 34". 

The letters are outlined. There are wavy lines between the letters and some McTavishing on the squares on the upper right and left.

The fabric in the letters is Daydreams by Kate Spain.
Other fabrics on the front are from my stash :)
The backing and binding are from my LQS, owned by my friend Barb.
