Quilt Soap Review

 Hello dear readers.  You asked for a review on the Quilter's Rule Quilt Soap.  Here's my experience:
I used this soap to clean my Rock the Boat Waterfall Version Quilt, just returned from a trunk show with Island Batik.  My quilt was returned in beautiful condition, but I felt it needed a cleaning after being out in the world.  I did a machine wash, delicate cycle, using the Quilt Soap.  Before using, you have to shake the container a bit to agitate the contents.  

 This is how the soap looks inside.  It is maybe a little thicker than laundry detergent and has a nice clean smell, like soap.  You only need one tablespoon of the soap per wash.  This 8 oz. container has enough for 16 washes, and complete directions for machine washing, or washing by hand for more delicate, family heirloom type quilts.  I also threw in a color guard sheet with my quilt, just in case.  

 As you can see, my quilt came out nice and clean!  It also has a clean smell, not a strong purfume-y smell, just clean.  Very nice, and kitten approved.  I'm keeping the Quilt Soap in my laundry room. It's also notable that this soap contains no water, dye, or additives and it's biodegradable.  I received my Quilt Soap in my Quilty Box subscription, but you can purchase it from Quilter's Rule, here:  Quilt Soap.  

Note:  This product was given to me by Quilty Box at no cost to me.

Quilting the Crocker Baby Quilt ~ Part Two

This is my newest studio assistant, Sunrise.  He jumped right in and helped me weave in the loose thread ends after I finished quilting the Crocker Baby Quilt.  Did you see my blocks from Part One?  Link to that post here:  Quilting the Crocker Baby Quilt ~ Part One

 I quilted a different design in each of the 36 square blocks on this quilt.  I'm not going to show all of them, but here's a few.  This one is curlicues inside a bracket shape with up and down lines on the outsides.

 I freehand quilted all the designs with no marking or rulers.  I like this one's simple and whimsical look.

 This is my favorite block in the quilt.  It was my first attempt at a curved grid.  I love the look of it!  I'll be quilting this design again.  

 A curvy feather wreath that fills in the whole square.

 This one is a bit difficult to see.  It's a curlicue feathery design sewn diagonally across the block.

 Wavy vertical lines.

 A partial flower.

 Blue corner lines.

 Curvy lines meandering diagonally across the square.

Here's a pic of the top before quilting.  Binding next!

Note:  The fabric and pattern for this quilt were given to me by Quilty Box at no cost to me.

Macaws Quilt Update

 I had a few minutes to work on the Macaws quilt this week.  I made a teeny tiny bit of progress!  The blue Macaw is now sitting on his perch.  So cute!  I love it.  

I hope I can sew the perches for the yellow and orange Macaws soon too!  To read more about this project, see my first post here:  Macaws Quilt ~ A Work in Progress
