Gail's Quilt



 Before I talk about this quilt, is anyone out there still having problems leaving comments?  I am.  I guess I'll just have to get over it...for now.  Maybe I'll try blog surfing/commenting tomorrow.

ANYHOO...this is Gail's quilt.  I just finished it a couple of days ago.  She has the most coolest vintage fabrics.  The yellow butterfly brought back sweet memories because we had those sheets when I was growing up...lol!  I put an iron-on stabilizer on each block.  All of the fabrics needed a little support and by adding the stabilizer this quilt should last a very long time.  I read on someone's blog about using stabilizer because I wouldn't have known.  Gail found the perfect binding to go with her quilt, it's from the Dream On line.  The backing was supposed to be all Bella Solid white.  But I also had some yardage from the Dream On collection and decided to add a 5 inch strip to the middle of the backing (pic #4).  I love everything about this quilt...the fabric & style just fit.  I can't wait for Gail to see it in person because quilts are so much more beautiful in person.

I'm looking forward to doing some blog surfing tomorrow.  I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

ps...when I took pictures of the quilts on the the fallen tree, I had a sheet underneath the quilt.

  1. The quilt is really pretty, colorful and bright. The only thing I have ever used the fusible stabilizer on was a tee-shirt quilt, and I can see where vintage fabrics would be so soft and/or worn that they would need a little support. Beautiful quilt!

  2. That is just so gorgeous - reminds me of long summer nights - sleeping on the screened in porch at the lake. Beautiful!

    Try signing out of blogger, then signing back in, but leaving the little "remember me" box unchecked. That's worked for several people who have been having trouble leaving comments, NO clue why!

  3. Very pretty quilt, Michelle.

    I was having lots of problems leaving comments and then I read somewhere to unclick "leave me signed on" on the sign in screen and that will help.

  8. Beautiful!!!

    If you are still having commenting problems, Terry gave us a clue and I have had no other problems since. When you are taken to your sign in screen just uncheck the box that asks if you want to stay signed in. Don't ask me why it works, but it did for me.

  9. Beautiful quilt! I see a fabric in there that I think I had sheets out of too long ago! LOL I had trouble commenting for weeks, and someone told me to uncheck the "Keep me signed in" box and I've not had a bit of trouble commenting since. Hope it works for you! :0)
