November Goal

I am making a quilt for my brother. He is a pretty awesome guy. He has helped me with tiling in my home and also has helped a lot supporting my parents since my Dad is still not working because of his motorcycle accident. It has been a frustrating year for our family but through it all we can always count on each other. This quilt is a Thank-you for all that he does!

I had finished this quilt top early last month and have been waiting to be inspired on how I am going to quilt it. I think I have decided to do straight line quilting horizontally in a dark gray thread. I hope it will be quick since I have quite a few projects to finish before the end of the year.

This pattern is called Orbit. You can find it over at LRstitched right here. It is an awesome quilt along pattern. I would highly recommend it!  Since this is a guy quilt I did add some length to the top and the bottom. You don’t want your toes to get cold!

I even have the back all ready to go too. Now to get basting and quilting!

The goal I am setting from myself is to have this quilted by the end of the month. I would love to have it quilted for show and tell at the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild meeting on the 18th but we will see if time and my children will allow that, lol.

Nice masculine quilt for your bro! One of the best parts about knowing how to quilt is how meaningful they are as gifts.

Straight line quilting is always a good way to go. Gives nice texture but is simple enough to do and hopefully can be done quickly!
