Quilting the Day Away!!


I thought I would post a few pictures of the quilting I've done on this quilt. It's a quilt made for Quilts for Kids. I used a ruler to make the curved lines on the squares. The sashing has some of the free motion quilting I've done in the past.

This is just another view of the quilt. It's made of 9 blocks of 9-patches, It's been a great way to get used to ruler work. I've always been a little intimidated especially of curved rulers. I feel much more comfortable now.

I just started making feathers in the border. They're more difficult for me on the longarm especially since I'm making them upside down! I'm hoping they're better as I finish up this quilt. Practice is what I really need!
