I sewed a number of things last week including bibs for a friend’s baby and a little lavender sachet but nothing big.
This past weekend I singed up for the Craftsy class, Design It, Quilt It: Free Form Techniques with instructor, Cindy Needham. This is an excellent class and Cindy is a great teacher if you want to learn detailed and heirloom free motion quilting.
I used my Easy jellyroll star orphan block since the corners were pieced in Kona snow in error, as practice. I used glass bowls to create the arc designs and drew 1/2″ grids in the corners. Deciding which pattern goes where is a hard decision, you never know what it’s really going to look like until it’s complete and if you don’t like it, too bad. I used Aurifil 50wt thread for the piecing and quilting, it’s the finest I have. Gutermann 50wt is just too thick.
It is tedious but rewarding but I managed to quilt all of this by noon, walked the dog and got on the treadmill.
