super donut: september 2018

I recently finished what I’m calling my Super Donut quilt. A lot of the inspiration for this quilt is described in my post on my Donut Quilt, finished several weeks prior to this one. And the piecing was fairly similar to that quilt as well – I cut a two paper templates from a 8.5″x11″ printed page clipped from the entire Photoshop design.

Materials

For this Super Donut, I used Alison Glass’ Kaleidoscope opal fabric, which is a woven shot cotton with a mix of aqua and white threads, although it reads as a solid from a short distance. I mixed this with a white cotton from my stash (not sure which solid white it is). My quilt back has two shades of coral from my stash as well, which compliment the opal nicely. Opal is also used for the binding.

Quilting

I deviated from the quilting I did on the regular Donut Quilt, because I found quilting curves to be difficult. I did straight line quilting alternating between horizontal and vertical lines throughout the non-pieced part of the quilt, in the shape of concentric circles. I did stitch-the-ditch-ish quilting in the pieced section, and another round of mirror quilting on that as well. All of the quilting was done with Aurifil 50wt white thread on my Juki domestic machine with a walking foot.

More Pics Later?

I’m hoping to get this quilt in a couple of shows, so for now, enjoy my #wip photos from IG and the above shot. Maybe more later!!

Well we’re a bit off center (my fault) but this collaboration with stephskardal has me feeling really excited! She’s letting me play around with her Super Donut quilt design on some Glowforge projects to see what we come up with. 💡💥 ♥️ #Glowforge #lasercutwood #stephskardalquiltssuperdonut2018 ...

The girls woke up at 7 this morning. Gross. On the bright side, I decided to use that time to start the binding. #quilt #quilting #sewing #fabric #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #makemodern #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltssuperdonut2018 #originaldesign #showusyourmqg #machinepieced #machinepiecing #juki #aurifil #aurifilthread #sew #makemodern #machinequilting #machinequilted #binding #handbinding #silkthread ...

Super Donut in progress. This opal (aqua) fabric (Alison Glass’ kaleidoscope) is a looser weave than my first donut quilt, so I’m a little more attentive to piecing accuracy because it’s more squirrelly 😁😁. Doing this one in four chunks instead of one big chunk. #quilt #quilting #sewing #fabric #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #makemodern #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltssuperdonut2018 #originaldesign #showusyourmqg #machinepieced #machinepiecing #juki #aurifil #aurifilthread #sew #makemodern #alisonglass #kaliedoscope ...

Super Donut has been appliquéd onto the [matching] background! I worked on much it while watching the original Jurassic Park with the girls.

Finally got started on quilting this. I already ripped out the center because it was crooked, but they otherwise I’m happy with the direction here.

    I so love this quilt! Everything about it! And those colors together–so unexpected (at least, to me :)–and so spot on!!
