The Posey Slide quilt is finally complete. Inspiration for this project came from a quilt my mom made many years ago. I raided my mom’s stash for the circles and then fussy cut a lot of them.

Gaining experience with needle turn appliqué was part of the goal in making this quilt. I definitely got a lot of practice and have more confidence with this skill.
I vacillated a lot about the quilting – so many options. I ended up quilting a gentle wavy line that feels a little whimsical and was easy to do with the quilting foot on my Pfaff. After years in the making, I am happy to finally finish this quilt. Best of all, I love the way it turned out!

Back is Tula Pink Free Fall fabric.

Details for making this quilt:
Squares – 7″
Circles – 5″ diameter
Finished quilt has 72 blocks.

Happy Quilting! ▶︎ ▶︎ ▶︎

I’ve always been a doodler and loved art from an early age. I picked up my first fabric, a pink and white checked gingham, at 9 years old and cross-stitched my name. In 1996, my mom started quilting and her inspiration motivated me to make my first quilt in 1998. I found a pattern in a book from the library, changed the colors to make a Christmas quilt and pieced it together. I even quilted and bound it! I enjoy working with all kinds of fabric mediums and threads. I enjoy sewing with my machine and doing handwork. I get inspiration from my life including people, scenery, patterns and objects around me. Follow me here and on Instagram @lesleystorts.
