A finish: Washi Tape Quilt

Ooh that was quite a big pause in posts for me! I have been doing quite a bit, and have a finish to post up today, albeit not one from my finish along list…. Still got to finish the things that pay the bills first, right?

So here is my Washi Tape quilt…

I forgot to photograph the back, but it’s not that exciting, it’s just a large brown floral that I got from the fabric guild.

Size – 40″ x 50″
Number of blocks – 20x  10″
Time to piece – 4 hours
Time to quilt – 2 hours
Fabric –  Kona School Bus, Klona White, Zen Chic Barcelona F8 bundle with a lot left over!
Backing Fabric – Brown and orange large print floral (no details in selvedge)
Binding Fabric – Same as backing fabric, using facings technique.
Threads – White Aurifil throughout.
Batting – 80/20 Soft and Elegant.
Quilting- Matchstick quilting along vertical and horizontal features. 8″ between the clusters, but that’s OK because Soft and Elegant can go up to 10″ apart.

It’s a nice easy make, just finishing up the instructions and I’m sending it off for publishing. Next job is to finish quilting the Bowie quilt- the challenge will be seeing if I actually finish it up this week in order to have at least one finish along finish this quarter.

Don’t know if you can tell, but I got myself that new camera (The Fuji HS50), I’ve been having fun testing it out, the dynamic range “EXR” facility is wonderful, I keep it on all the time. There’s very little noise in the darker pictures and the review screen (and most importantly the auto focus) is pin sharp. I’m very pleased with it!


I’m going to eat that flower….


Onto secret project number 2…

    Love the Christmassy prints in the secret project: table mats? runner? I have some Xmas material waiting for the right project.
    BTW, I have almost caught up with the BOMs. I posted 2 on Flickr and will finish the Iris this afternoon possibly. I am so enjoying it.

    I like your quilt and I have been thinking it is time for a log cabin project. Your new camera sounds great.

    Love the quilting effect! And logcabin.. its a little too early see christmassy prints which is why I never get anything done!

    That’s a really funky quilt! I would say I hadn’t seen you working on this, but you’d probably tell me you showed me the top finished!

    The Washi Tape quilt looks great! I’m glad you’ve got a new camera 🙂

    Enjoy the new toy! Know what you mean about finishing those bill-paying things first though *sigh*
