Summer Breeze

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Sunkissed Summer Breeze Link to website or photo www.fabrictherapy.com/sunkissed-summer-breeze-pattern/ What are you most proud of? The applique details as well as the hand stitched embroidery. What advice would you give someone starting this project? There is a ton of cutting involved so allow time for that. Also, the applique work takes a while to sew using a machine. It can be done either by hand or with the machine; I would imagine it would take a really long time doing it by hand, but the finished look would be amazing if this method was used. I used 505 Basting Spray to adhere the triangles one row at a time. I also used a disappearing ink pen to mark the wave lines. This enabled me to embroidery them much easier.

What you will need

  • Sunkissed Summer Breeze fabric and white cotton for the solid rows. This project requires one jelly roll as well as specified yardage for the solids.

Q&A with kellyedge

mmauch asked:
Very pretty quilt & well made! That would take a lot of patience to cut out and then stitch around all those little triangles. Great Job!
kellyedge answered:
Thank you. I worked on it on and off between other projects so it wasn' t that bad.
chelef asked:
Very beautiful, I love the colors. I admire your patience.
kellyedge answered:
chelef, thank you... but the truth is that I dawdled along in between other projects.
Linda Brandon asked:
You did a beautiful job on this quilt! I would like to try this pattern. Did you do the quilting yourself and did you do it on a home sewing machine?
kellyedge answered:
Thank you for your kind comment. I quilted this myself using a Brother home sewing machine. I start in the middle and work out in all four directions sewing a quarter of the quilt at a time.
Bonnie Wilson asked:
I love this quilt - the colors, the pattern, the quilting! I'm so encouraged to read that you sew on a Brother - that's what I have too. You are able to get such good results - looks very professional!
kellyedge answered:
I love my Brother machine! She's named Laura . Here is what I do when the quilt is anything larger than wall hanging size: I put a card table up to the left of my sewing table to create an L shape. This way, the weight of the quilt lays on the table rather than pulling down and dragging off to the side. I also put Yellow Pages books all around my sewing machine to build up the space - again, this allows the quilt to lay all around the machine rather than hanging, dragging, and pulling. It makes a huge difference in how your machine will sew those stitches (namely tension problems). Practice on small scraps of quilt sandwiches and just have fun!
