"T Stands for Thelma" . . . .

My "T Stands for Thelma" quilt is home from the quilter.


I thought I would try white binding, I know that's sort of a quilting no no, but I like how crisp it looks, I think it was a good call. 
We  (we being me and my long arm quilter Connie Lancaster at Quilts Plus) decided just a nice all over pattern would work best for this quilt top.


This pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co also goes by the name of Bibelot.  It would make a great choice if you're looking for that perfect project for the Schnibbles July sew along.

I decided to hang this quilt in my guest room.


This is Lifetime Quilt Number 82, click here for more detail.

Also, I'm up to 21 yo-yos!  



The olympic trials on TV lately helped with my production.

  1. Love "T Stands for Thelma"! So nice to see the quilt top become a quilt. The quilting definitely does the quilt justice, and I agree that the white binding is the perfect choice. What a lovely guest room you have created with your works of art!

  8. Love your blog and seeing all your beautiful quilts! What a lovely guest room too! I have a question though....I have noticed that you use alot of different quilters to quilt your quilts. Can you tell me (us) how you choose them and how long it takes for some of them to quilt your quilts by the time you send them off to them? Months, days???? I am looking for a new quilter and have been wondering about using someone I don't know. Or do you know all of these wonderful quilters? Thanks!

  10. The guest room looks like it was made for that quilt! it's perfect in that spot! And I adore the white binding. I think if you went with any other color/pattern, it would have that crispness.
