Happy Sunday everyone and a very warm welcome to my new followers
Here are some photos of my latest finish. This one was really quick to make and I had so much fun trying to be a bit more adventurous with my free motion quilting, probably because it turned out well first time I used another of my birthday gift Moda charm packs called Pom Pom de Paris plus some of my beloved Moda Bella Solids.
The small dark squares are a rich burgundy colour. I wanted to create a bit of an accent, something to catch the eye. I think it works well and hope you do too
I quilted in rows of cursive letter c’s. I did a quick practice piece before attempting the quilt and, to my surprise, it flowed quite easily.
I used a linen coloured quilting thread for both the front and the back as I wanted the quilting to blend on the reverse and make it look quite luxurious. I’m not sure if you can see this from the photos but I think I managed to get the effect I wanted.
I hope you are all finding time to craft in the middle of all your preparations (if you are celebrating this week). I’d like to get at least one more project finished before the end of the year. Time will tell
In the meantime, here are a couple of wonderful ideas I found this week. Isn’t blogging wonderful for helping us to have so many things we want to try? We could never be bored!!
The first one shows an ingenious way to finish a cushion opening here.
The second idea gives instructions for making a gorgeous origami gift bow here.
I will definitely be trying these myself in the near future
