TGIFF - These Three, the QAL Version

Welcome to this week's Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday! I have a finished These Three quilt top to share today 😊 This is my second These Three quilt, which I made during the Moments with Jesus QAL, which finished up on Saturday. You'll have to excuse the indoor pictures. I finished the quilt top after dark the evening before we headed out of town, so there was no chance to even try for outdoor ones.

I made this one with gorgeous Phosphor Electric fabrics, by Libs Elliott for Andover Fabrics. I love those bright colours!

My lines in my Corner Star blocks didn't turn out perfectly, but I decided they were close enough.

I love the applique blocks most. The quilt, and its name, are based on 1 Corinthians 13:13, which says, "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

Want to see the difference the choice of stitching can make for applique? Here's the same flower shape with three different looks. For this version of These Three, I used a zig zag stitch in a matching Aurifil thread.

For my first These Three, I stitched around using my free motion foot, stitching around twice with matching thread.

I used the same flower shape for my Daisy Chain banner. For those flowers, I also stitched around with my free motion foot, and stitched around twice, but this time I used black thread. I also stitched right in to the flower center, to define the flower petals, rather than only going around the outside edge. Isn't it amazing how different the flowers look depending on thread and stitch choice?

Now I have two These Three quilt tops ready to be quilted. If only I knew how I want to quilt them!

  1. Oh, it's beautiful, Leanne, and I really love getting to see how the different stitches look for the applique piecing. I love Libs' Electric Phosphor prints (they are so delightful). I bet you will come up with a great quilting plan that adds beautiful texture and depth to the finish.

  2. Interesting to see the three different appliqué stitching, Leanne! Beautiful quilt with such vibrant colors!!! I'm guessing you made two because it was a QAL, and you had a before sample and a working sample?


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
