Since I purchased my stippling quilting foot, many moons ago, I have wanted to try free form quilting but never got up the nerve to just try it on scraps. I gave you a wee peek just before Christmas and here is the quilt that was being worked on.
I had a blast doing the stippling and will definitely be doing more experimenting.
This quilt went together very quickly using strips of material sewn together and cut into rail fences and 4 patch blocks. I bought 1metre of black and it is all gone now. The black was used here as well as in my Mom’s purse. Black seems to be popping up more and more in my quilts lately and it’s not a colour that is in my stash. Do you see a shopping urge coming along? :o)
Also, this is the first time that I have used the 100% cotton batting in a quilt. This quilt was dried in the dryer and it shrink up quite a bit, but love the effect and my quilting just seems to pop up more and looks old fashioned. My border is wonky as there is just not enough quilting there as compared to the inside blocks. I’ll have to play with different border quilting other than just straight stitching. It’s not my best; but it’s not bad either. :o)
I’ve been tagged again for ‘You Make My Day’ award. First tag was by Loulee and now Anne Ida. Thank you ladies and you two make my day as well! :o)
Have a great day!
