This is wheelchair quilt #10 (counting the first two I donated on my own). At 36 3/4" square, it is the widest of the ten quilts, and I hope it will be okay as far as not getting caught in the wheels. I love love love this quilt and plan to make one of my own to take as my 'sit-upon' quilt when I teach yoga. It was definitely a little more finicky and involved (the small squares and star points finish at 2") than the previous quilts I've made. Worth every stitch (okay, and a few reverse stitches ha).
This is outside on the front step in natural light. Again, all five fabrics were in the guild's charity fabric stash. The two blues are Moda, Brannock and Patek, and of a superb quality. I loved working with them. The red is Springs Industries by Ro Gregg, and of a similar quality. The background is either a decent quality muslin or maybe just a solid, no selvages on it. The medium blue also has no selvage on it. Clearly these are older fabrics because of their deep colours, and no names of fabric line on the selvages.
This is a more masculine quilt, but could be for a woman quite easily (after all I could quite easily keep it!).
Here it is on the design wall before the final 2" finished border.
This quilt is called Stardust, and is another in Pam & Nicky Lintott's Two From One Jelly Roll Quilts, a terrific book, from our guild library. I've made two versions of Fairy Steps for wheelchair quilts from this book; I might just have to get it for my own collection! I already have two of their books, absolutely love their quilts.
The HSTs for the star points have the coolest technique! I want to share it with you. How can you get a 2 1/2" HST from a 2 1/2" strip? Read on!
