Good Morning readers, and welcome back to another post about quilting.
This has been a week of finishing projects and starting new ones. I am trying to shorten my to-do list so I am finishing at least 2 projects before starting a new one.
Other than updating my internet profiles, I finished my So Scrappy quilt blocks, set up my new sewing room, and finished the quilting & binding on my Dutch Windmill table runner.
This was a test piece for the pattern and quilting design. I’m not 100% thrilled with the machine quilted “wind”, but my husband loves it. He said it was much nicer than the straight lines in the center panel. What do you think?
I also started the quilting on the Dutch Windmill quilt.
I’m not a fan of machine quilting, but there is just too much going on in my life right now, I had to do something to save some time. Besides, I think it is starting to look rather nice.
I quilted inside and around each blade, the center block and the entire block where it meets the sashing. I started to quilt the “wind” in the background, but didn’t get a chance to finish. I’m hoping to get at least 2 blocks completely quilted today.
She was kind enough to share a copy of “Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks” magazine with me and I have been itching to get to work since it arrived. Right now I am leaning toward using one of these fabrics as my main color choice.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
