I just can’t seem to get in the habit of posting. While I’m at my sewing machine I’m constantly thinking “that would be a great thing to post on my blog.” But when it comes to sitting at the computer and typing it out, I just don’t follow through. Now I’m challenging myself to post SOMETHING at least three times a week.
Yesterday I loaded and started quilting the top I made from the Moda “Prayer Flag” fabric. Quilting the straight lines is proving to be a challenge, but I’m going to work through it because I think the quilt really calls for it. Of course, the rest of the quilting (meandering) went really quickly so the delay is kind of frustrating. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll have a chance to finish it.
I DID finish the Moda “Boutique” quilt. I just loved this line of fabric and only had a layer cake and a few coordinates so it took quite awhile to decide what to do with it. I ended up just doing a geometric design with squares and rectangles. It ended up being a really pretty quilt and I just listed it on Etsy.
Here’s a picture of the finished quilt. I quilted it with my favorite pantograph called “plumage.” It’s just a soft, feather design that goes fast and looks great on these pretty, feminine quilts. The first photo shows a detail of the quilting and the second is a photo of the whole quilt.
