I had planned to post this earlier today but decided we needed a night out with Mom and Dad to eat. There is this little restaurant not far from here that has some really good food that doesn’t cost a fortune. They also have the best Fried Dill Pickles. Had a good time!
I completed this month’s free motion quilting challenge. You can read more about it if you are interested at !Insights From Sewcalgal. This month’s challenge was given to us by Paula Reid. If you want to see some amazing quilting, you really need to check out her blog.
So here is my September challenge piece. I used the technique of printing the design on newsprint and then stitching on the lines. So easy to do!
I am looking forward to next month’s challenge.
Thanks for stopping by! See you again really soon!
I managed to get my August FMQ Challenge finished last week but wasn’t able to get it posted until today. This was a hard one from Wendy Sheppard called Jesters Hats.
I found that the design got easier as I went. I guess that means the saying, “practice, practice, practice”, is really true!
I was sad though that this was my last piece of Fossil Fern Blueberry. I guess I will have to try to find more.
If you are interested in joining the FMQ Challenge it is never too late. Just head over to Insights from Sewcalgal’s blog.
I love this Blueberry Fossil Fern fabric but unfortunately this is my last piece of it.
It is never too late to get in on the challenge at Insights From Sewcalgal.
Along with the FMQ Challenge I have been participating in, I have managed to get some other things finished.
I used a nice scroll and feather edge to edge design in the quilting.
I also completed this Trapunto wall quilt. I wasn’t really happy with this one. I won’t go into what is wrong with it but will let you know that this is a photo of the back and not the front. If you wonder why it looks kind of wonky, part of the reason is the way the clothesline hangs and part of the reason is that it has been wadded up waiting for a photo to be taken. Yes, wadded! Not happy at all with this one. Especially after all the time it took to complete.
This is a closeup of the outside edge of this one.
This is the center. I don’t know if you can tell much about the trapunto.
Well, that is it for now. I am going to be really busy the next few weeks. I am changing jobs on Monday. I will be going from a part time position to a full time position. I think this will probably cut into my quilting time but will supplement my fabric stash!
Hope you had a great holiday!!
