Some Finishes–Not All Mine!

Two of the ladies who took the shirt making class earlier this year have finished their shirts and allowed me to have pictures.

I love both these shirts! They each did a great job!

In other news, I got this quilt back from the quilter and did the binding. It’s made with Charley Harper fabrics to go with the hand made Charley Harper tiles on my fireplace.

With regard to the Charley Harper fabric: It is very high quality. It’s the only fabric I’ve ever seen that was all printed exactly on grain! You can see from the designs why this is important, but it’s a rarity. Here’s a closeup of one of the blocks and the binding.

And here’s a closeup of the tiles in the fireplace surround so you can see why the quilt needs to go in the living room! These Charley Harper tiles are from Motawi Tile Works.

  1. Those blouses are just adorable! Obviously the students had a great instructor. Can you share what pattern it is? I’m always on the lookout for warm-weather tops, and ones made with quilting cottons are the best! Your Charley Harper quilt is nice too. Great that you found and appreciate a print that’s on the grain… which is not always the case.

    • Agreed! Also, piggybacking on your comment, FlourishingPalms: Zip, could you share the pattern?
      I remember the first time I learned about printed panels not being on grain…what a mess. It took me years to brave that horse and try again! At least now I know what to look for and areas that can be compensated etc…

      • The pattern is “By Popular Demand”, by Louise Cutting. Her company is Cutting Line Designs, or the pattern is available from Studio Stitch (just phone them at 336-288-9200). Sorry I didn’t put that info in the post!

  2. The blouses turned out great–I can see that this is one of those patterns that turns out differently with each person that makes it. And love the Charley Harper quilt, especially when the connection to your house is shared. Yes, of course the quilt needs to be in the same room as those beautiful tiles. Well done!
