So, I took a long “quick-stitch-break” the past few weeks and collaborated with J. Wecker Frisch from Joy Studio. She is an amazing artist showing her new fabric lines at the International Quilt Market in Houston, TX this week. Janet’s new fabric line, “The Queen of We’en” is being introduced by Quilting Treasures.
For my part, I was able to work with fun printed panels from Janet’s newest fabric collection. We designed one large Queen fabric panel into a quilt and four smaller Queen fabric panels into wall hangings. The quilting was kept simple; I used the Baby Lock Sashiko Sewing Machine to do all of the stitching. The Sashiko machine is one of my favorite machines. It is different than any other conventional machine; the machine makes what looks like individual stitches on the quilt. You know, like I hand-stitched the entire project…NOT!
To accentuate the Queen quilt and panels, I incorporated one of my favorite fabrics this time of year, burlap with golden accents. Granted burlap is not washable, but these projects and most fall sewing projects are usually just decorative. So, consider adding a little burlap to your next fall project, whether it is in a wall hanging, table runner, or some cute pillows.
Don’t forget if you are in Houston for the International Quilt Market, drop by booth number 2534!
