I have finally finished making my Cactus Patch Quilt from Bonnie Hunter's book "Scraps and Shirttails". The inside of the blocks are made from 2 inch strips of men's shirts. It finished at 114X112. I used cotton Batting and LOVE the feel of it. I haven't washed it yet. I think yellow walls are in order but couldn't wait to post the picture. I think that's why I haven't posted in a while. I would really like to post a photo of a finished bedroom but then you run the chance of never seeing it.
I I quilted it with my DSM (domestic sewing machine). I needed to visit my chiropractor when I was done.
For the back I used a 100% cotton sheet that I got at Overstock.com for a really good price. However it was not big enough. I pieced a big cross through it. I used a micro sharps needle. It worked really well, but the thread left a lot of lint.
Here is the sunrise this morning. I had to get up super early to get DS#1 to a bus headed to San Francisco to do a "Walk for Life" with his youth group (girlfriend) and their families. He wouldn't let the rest of us go along.
Next project is to get this baby quilted. Again, Bonnie Hunter's latest mystery Carolina Christmas. I made all of the blocks but am only using half of them for a good size throw.
