QA # 27 How to store your quilt
Although Leah Day had a computer malfunction, she still found a way to provide us with a quilt-along for the week. Thank you Leah!
I had just purchased a noodle last month to do this very project for my whole-cloth feather wall hangings we made in an earlier quilt along. I made 4 small wall quilts having in mind that 3 of them were for gifts. My plan was to roll them on a covered noodle, but love the idea of a sleeve!
The sleeve also provides for these three Christmas gifts to be wrapped way before Christmas! Once I pick up another noodle, I will get this third one wrapped up in no time. I took a shortcut and cut the end of the sleeves with pinking sheers and tied the extra fabric into a knot.
Question for you Leah? Do you ever pin your quilts to the noodle, or does the tautness of the sleeve keep the quilt tight on the roll?
Another finish this week for me was my Applique quilt. It is all done on my domestic sewing machine in FMQ, and the beadwork is all done by hand.
I designed the pillowtop especially to fit our pillows, without tucking in, which allows the garland border to remain smooth without ripples.
I also did some special features on the corners in order for the gentle drape where the blue bows are.
One of the blocks is my own design, while the others are from an Eleanor Burns QIAD pattern.
