Fall Foliage and the Humpty-Hump


I finally got around to quilting my Jellyroll 1600.  Remember the quilt contest we had at our guild retreat?  With its simple design, I didn’t want to over quilt it, so I made a large meander (stipple) and then I did the humpty-hump on each side of that line.  Like this.

I think I’ll name this quilt design “The double humpty-hump.”  Hope I won’t be sued for copyright infringement by Digital Underground.  I also hope “humpty-hump” isn’t something obscene.   I didn’t make up the term, but I did make up the design.  Well, I kind of made it up.  All I did was rearrange the stipple, really.  I do have another design that I haven’t seen elsewhere.  Have you tried McNacho-ing?

As for the scenery, my family and I took a camping trip to Lost Maples Natural Area (state park) to check out the fall foliage.  I heard that some folks didn’t realize Texas had autumn, so I’m here to show otherwise.  Here’s some pics of the fam experiencing fall.  Not sure how it compares to the rest of the country or world, but we sure love what we have here.

Don Corleone liked it, too.

  1. Great quilting design! I love how those Bali Pops look like a stained glass window. Just one question, did you train Don to take pictures of you? How else did you get such a great family pic? (Haha I’m assuming you had a timer)

    You look good, girlfriend. Not teaching Jr. High agrees with you.

    Hey! I am Candy’s friend. Just dropped by to check you out. Nice to know another Texas quilter. And a longarm quilter too. That doubles the “nice”. Maybe I’ll ship to you sometimes.

    That’s what I want to do with my bug jelly roll and you can do the humpty-hump on it! 😀
