Double Time: A Finished Quilt


This is yet another stash busting quilt for me.  It used up the last of this stack of fabric.


That stack of fabric was enough for six of my quilts and a quilt my niece made.  I seriously love turning stacks of fabric into quilts!  Now my old stash fits into one laundry basket sized bin.


I named this quilt, a gift for a family member, Double Time.


It uses the Double Slice Layer Cake pattern from the Missouri Star Quilt Company and has musical instruments on the back.  The instruments reminded me of time signatures and timing.  Combining the two, I cam up with Double Time.


I decided to quilt this on my little Pfaff because I can quilt so much better when I am sitting down.


I quilted it in a feathered spiral design.  It was so much fun to try something new.


It was really hard to keep the design the same size on my little machine, so I decided to purposely make them different sizes.  That made it consistently inconsistent.  Lol.


The backing fabric came from my mom's stash.  I love how it tied in the teals, blues, and the fuschias.


The binding is scrappy using some of the teal fabrics in the quilt.


I love how this quilt turned out, especially the quilting!

  4. The backing fabric blends so perfectly with the top, it almost appears you started with the backing and selected coordinating fabrics for the top! Well done. :)

  7. Consistently inconsistent is the way to go!! Seriously your quilting is great and what a lovely quilt. It is certainly a different flow of quilting between a domestic machine and a longarm, but I do like the speed at which you can finish projects on the longarm.

  10. Great name! Love the colours you put together...who knew seeing that stack of scraps would end up so pretty! I've done that feathered spiral all-over design and it is such fun and goes really fast. Ha you're channelling your inner Angela: consistently inconsistent. She says if you make a mistake, don't necessarily rip it out: repeat it somewhere else and it becomes a design element!
