Sunday Stash – Finishing

It was quite a busy week for me given the remnants of the long holiday weekend and two more finishes earlier today! I finished up the second sample that will be hanging at Red Hen Stitch Shop when our Emilio pattern launches in a couple weeks; pics of that quilt when the pattern launches!

I also finished up another sample quilt for the pattern after that, Main Squeeze, this morning, but that pattern won’t be out until August.  One of the quilts I can show, though, is my finished Madras quilt, which was from my class with Bill Kerr.  The class was much more focused on color theory than stitching techniques, but I wanted a consult with him to pick the colors and then I stitched on my own.  His comment when he saw my selection, “It’s certainly cheerful!”

The pattern is called Madras from his book, Transparency Quilts.
