Jody’s Passion 48: June

I have had so much fun working on my Passion 48 project – Urban Attitude by Cherri House (author of City Quilts and Urban Views).


I have finished piecing together the last rows.



And completed pressing and clipping threads.


All fourteen rows have been sewn together!


Next week I’ll piece the backing and binding and then it’s off to the machine quilter. It’s always good to discuss expectations with your machine-quilter. Telling them, “Do whatever you want” isn’t always the best solution. You may not be happy with the result. If you are unsure of how you would like something quilted ask your quilter for suggestions on design and thread options. Let the quilter know if you want the thread color to blend in or be the main attraction. Evaluate the intended use. Will the quilt be used and laundered frequently? If so, an allover design may be more economical than custom quilting.
