Carol’s Fire Island Hosta

Another beauty from Carol!  This is a Judy Niemeyer /Quiltworx pattern Fire Island Hosta in the queen version.  She has been busy making gorgeous new quilts for all her bedrooms.


I’ve been getting a run on aqua quilts lately, 2 big ones recently and another one is on its way to me.  This was a really popular colorway!   I used teals/aquas in my own stalled PIB 0  mine is bold.  Maybe someday I will have some time to work on it. 
This was custom quilted on my 26″ Innova prior to the big move in my studio.  Sorry, I did not get to load this on my display stand to take a full picture.   I  already regret not having that full on picture!   I did take a pic of half of it hanging over my loft area as it came off the frame.  I do miss having that area to hang things off of as I work in my new studio space.   I like that full on picture, very dynamic designs.   This one was 101″ and not much on each side of that 108″? backing (wasn’t prewashed either so no shrinkage).   see the sides, that does create problems for me quilting.  I have to pin on extensions especially if doing ruler work,   I chose a fill for the busy outer border fabrics so I did not have to worry about rulers, but my ruler base is ALWAYS  on my machine so it’s always a factor that I need my clamps to clear my ruler base under the backing.
