Update on Colorwheel quilt

Update on Color Wheel Quilt

Almost done. Decided to do a facing instead of binding. Love the look and the simplicity of facing. Need to sew a hanging sleeve. Hand-sewing takes a toll on my wrist, so taking it snaily slow. I also cut the center circle with half inch seam allowance but only sewed a quarter inch. Don't ask me how and why. No, I am not seam ripping and sewing it back again. So need to fix the extra bulk by hand embroidery or quilting or maybe I'll get an idea later. Really will try hard to get a picture done with proper lighting and better focus.

Biased Blossom

This one is I made in 2017 with the same pattern as the Lotus Blossom quilt. I just change the background fabric and the quilting pattern. Did some echo quilting around the petals and pebbled the rest of the background. Planning to do more quilts with biased bindings in the near future.

Petal Parade

I just realized I never wrote a post on the Petal Parade Quilt I made in 2016. This quilt was inspired by a vintage cut metal grill. I am also fascinated with orange peel quilts and applique quilts. So it was a breeze to quickly put together this wall hanging. Yellow petals of two different size arranged in a geometric pattern on Navy blue background fabric and satin-stitched all around the petals and dots.

Finished Top -Wayward Transparency

I had a late start with the Wayward Transparency quilt-along hosted by Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl since I took so long in selecting the fabrics, but was able to finish at-least the quilt top by the extended deadline. I liked both the lap-quilt version and the On-point version. Once I started piecing there is no stopping until I sewed the corner triangles to set it on point. I want to take my time to quilt this huge 68"x 68" top. This is the biggest quilt I have pieced so far. Excuse the lighting of the photos, all my sewing was done when there was no daylight. Will try to take pictures during daytime after it is quilted.
Measures 48"x 48" when not set on On-point.
Measures 68" x 68" with On-point setting.

Wayward Transparency quiltalong

It's been a while since I have participated in a quilt-along. The last quilt along I did was in 2014 I believe. I really like the discussions, the fabric reveal and finally the quilt reveals that comes with a quilt-along. You feel part of a community. I usually don't join unless I really like the pattern and this time I absolutely love the Wayward Transparent Quilt by Yvonne on Quilting Jetgirl, and was thrilled when she announced the quilt-along. That was in August, Here I am at the end of November, just picked my fabrics.

I have cut what fabrics I have, the rest as soon it is delivered. I feel like I can piece it all up before the quilt finish in mid-December.
