Gradations placemat pattern finished

October 25, 2010

  The Gradations placemat and tablerunner pattern is quilted and finished.  I used the quilt and tear paper to transfer a quilting design by Ann Bright. It worked beautifully!  I used a variegated thread which brought out the pattern nicely.  I was very pleased at how quickly the quilted pattern was transferred.

Gradations pattern is being carried by www.quiltwoman.com.

I was able to get the Shades fabrics on the bolt from Clothworks.  I was able to make kits for the pattern and have them available through my email institchesquilts@gmail.com.  The ombre fabric was fun to work with and provides a perfect blend of colors.

The DeKalb County Quilters’ Guild is hosting a quilt show October 2 & 3, 2010.  It was a busy week prior to the show getting last minute details taken care of.  Once at the show, set up went pretty quickly.  The show itself is a showcase of the amazing quilting talent in DeKalb County. 

The show continues Sunday, Oct. 3 at the Sycamore Middle School in Sycamore, IL from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
