Keeping Up With Projects!

No automatic alt text available.

Here's a little progress on my latest free motion quilting on Arcadia Avenue. This block is so fun! No marking or measuring at all. I'm just quilting in the ditch and making loops in the white area. This quilt is taking forever but only because I'm working on lots of projects! That's fine with me. I'll be done soon enough!

This is a Flower Block for Green Tea and Sweet Beans. I'm changing it up a bit. I'm supposed to be using templates to surround the flower. My method is to applique the whole flower to a background fabric and then cutting down to size. I'm not sure it will work but I'm going to give it a try! There is a bottom half to this block that's a completely different fabric. Wonder how that will work out!

I feel that's the fun part about quilting. You can follow directions or you can do it your own way! I'll let you know how it goes!

  1. What a perfect fabric choice for your flower block. I think the method you described should work out just fine.

    1. Thanks for the vote of confidence! I thought applique was easier than sewing 4 small pieces. We'll see!!

More Machine Quilting

I finally started machine quilting the scrap quilt I made a little while ago. It took me forever to decide what to do with that border....
