February Finish: Split Personality Quilt
I finished this quilt just under the wire for Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts February Lovely Year of Finishes! Yea!
I loved the name that Marlene of Kissed Quilts came up with, "Split Personality". It also inspired my quilting method. I split the quilt into free motion quilting, and straight line quilting! I love the way it looks, and even better, it sounds and feels like corduroy when you run your hand over the straight quilting :-).
The back is even more "split", as it's all reproduction fabric that I had in my stash! Lots of orange in this quilt, which I'm sure Shanna will like ;-).
Finally, I used a new technique that I leanred from Marlene's blog or facebook page... using clear transparencies and a white board marker to put over a print out of the quilt (I don't have a color printer). Love it!
Free Motion Friday and Amanda Jean's Finish it up Friday. Below is another "finish", and free motion mini quilt that I finished earlier this week! 2 in one week?! Oh yeah!
