Chris’ Hawaiian Flower quilt

Chris’ Hawaiian Flower quilt

Chis picked up these lovely rayon flower fabrics from Jams World, while in Hawaii, and she thought she would try and make them into a quilt.  I love the pops of color and patterns in the fabrics.

I used my usual polyester wrapped polyester thread and the same machine needles use on all my quilting, to quilt it.  The stitches look great!  I didn’t have a problem with it skipping stitches, which is a relief.  Chris loved Patricia Ritter and my Ginger©️ design for the quilting on this one.  It’s available with all of our other designs at a Urban Elementz.  Click here for our Ginger design....  https://www.urbanelementz.com/ginger.html

My suggestion for making quilts out of fabrics like these, is to treat them like you would a t-shirt quilt and use an interfacing on the back of each square.  You can see that some of the blocks aren’t straight along the seams.  That isn’t because Chris didn’t sew or cut them straight, that’s just what happens when fabrics that have a little bit of stretch are quilted.  Chris used a cotton fabric for a small border and that definitely helped keep things square along the edges.

I also offer binding services, except for quilts backed with minky or cuddle.  $.25 a running inch.  I only hand bind.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you!
