Finished Objects

I'm done with the April selection from Rockin Sock Club! The yarn is called "Walking on the Wild Tide' and it was a silk/merino blend. So luscious!!!

The first picture shows the shifting colors:

The second picture is a little better in showing the leg pattern, which I found in The Sock Calendar by Catherine Wingate and Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer.

On the quilting side, I pieced the back for the Row Quilt from some fat quarters in my stash. I made a big label with details about the photos that are on the front. It's important to document your quilts, and there is extra security in sewing them into the backing.

Here is some detail of the quilting. These are two of my favorite freehand designs. An all-over scroll and a "flame flower." I used the flame flower on the bright orange and yellow quilt earlier this week. The scroll is an easier background fill for me to do than meandering.

Oooo, don't your Wide Tides look great! Being a Jackie E-S fan, I somehow missed The Sock Calendar. Must find one as I want my own version of your socks.
