Split Personality


Simple_Times_IMG_6708The Original Quilt Top

One More Time

Followers of my blog may be familiar with the project I call The Blue House. The Blue House (also known as Simple Times Crib Quilt) was a quilt top I had decided to cut apart and reassemble. From that one quilt top I created numerous projects of various sizes and shapes. I call this one SPLIT PERSONALTY.

As you can see from the photo below the center panel of the project was created by connecting leftover fragments of the original quilt with other scraps, slicing them apart and sewing them back together. After stitching together the center panel I surrounded it with two borders then set it aside to wait for quilting.

Finally Time

For several months now it’s been waiting in my UFQ (unfinished quilt) stack. Even though I have my very own long arm quilt machine I hire out my services to other people. The quilts belonging to those people always take priority over my own. I recently finished the last of my stockpiled customer quilts. This milestone opened up the possibility to work on something of my own. This quilt was the next one in line.

After waiting patiently for many months I was so excited to finally be able to add its finishing touches. I used a variety of patterns to practice my skills. Some of the areas turned out really well and some not so much. But overall I’d have to say I’m satisfied with the outcome. All I have left to do now is add a binding and some sort of attachment to aide in hanging it up. Here’s how it turned out.
