I have some projects I need to finish - my Swoon quilt, my Made in Cherry quilt but most important the quilt for my Nephew, which needs to be finished end of April. I made the pieced back this week and basted the quilt. Now I have stalled completely though – have no idea how to quilt it. Only thing I can come up with is stitch-in-the-ditch which is nice but… Well, you know. If you have any ideas on how to quilt this super boxy top I would love to hear from you.
Can I brag a little? I brought the top to my LQS to find the binding and the owner LOVED it – thought it was very unusual and asked for pictures so that they could use it for inspiration to others. I think it’s the dots that makes it stand out so much. I’m growing very fond of it myself. The binding was tough but I found some fantastic fabric and so is the pieced back is looking pretty darn good as well . Can't wait to show you the finished quilt. It will be quite a dramatic, busy quilt.
I continue to make Liberated Wedding Rings from my scrap pile when I can, but I also started another couple of scrap projects this week:
Paper pieced stars – just practicing - the centres are horrible. I have to rip these apart again and start over:
And then I'm making some large blocks in lovely green and red scraps. I hope to make some placeholders out of them but mostly I am making them to practice FMQ.
So as you can see some focus is much needed in my sewing room. Be sure to drop by Lee's blog to see more structured approach to quilting
