a quilt a day: shirts with shirtings.

Before I get rolling on Day 1 of QuiltCon, here’s my contribution for Day 2 of my mini quilt show.


Shirts with shirtings.

I know. Just crazy.

But seriously. I nabbed an awesome fat quarter stack of shirtings from one of my local quilt shops, and I was really happy to put them to use in this project. Other fabric credits include some architextures (tangerine hatch for the shirt trim, tangerine topo for binding, white hatch for the background) and then some Kona Meringue–my go-to cream–for the border. Kona coral on the back.

It’s on.

And you better believe I’m excited. Right now, I’m waiting to board my flight to Austin and QuiltCon is almost at my finger tips.

While I’m waiting for that. Let’s kick this adventure off with a quilt.

Sunrise + architextures + coordinating konas.

2 1/2″ strip packs of each + kona cactus for the frames, green map for the sashing, green trees for the border, and kona teal blue for the binding.

happy valentines day!

Aren’t I just so festive?

I started the morning off with some free-spirited, free-motion. Sometimes you just need to do some doodling, and that’s exactly what’s been going on here. The sample (Aerial, btw) is for a workshop I’m doing in March, and I’ve had it basted and ditch-stitched for longer than I should admit.


We’ve got QuiltCon a week away, which is nuts! I’m totally excited to be taking off for a few days, hanging out with lots of quilters, being in Austin, and doing whatever else along the way. I know there are plenty of folks who aren’t able to make it, and so I’ve decided to run some posts while I’m gone featuring tons of my recent projects in a little series I’m calling, “a quilt a day.” I hope that’s not too dorky.


So watch out for that, and send any pics my way (info[at]carolynfriedlander[dot]com). I’d love to include some quilts from you too. It’ll be our own lil quilt show.


And remember my recent sewing binge? Cheryl just released details on her next goodie. It’s safe to say that I’m already obsessed.
