Today has been a great day for sewing. Yesterday I sandwiched the bright scrappy squares. I had just gotten my Bernina back from being serviced so I thought it should be in great shape to quilt. I used the walking foot at first to quilt wavy diagonal lines which stabilized the center. Then I changed to the free-motion foot and quilted between those lines with lines sort of like wood grain.
Here is the front.
The quilting shows up better on the back.
I needed a break from quilting so I finished sewing the rows together for the orphan pinwheel top and I got one border added of the floral so it makes the pinwheel blocks float along the edge.
When I sewed the blocks and rows together, I had to press the seams open because of so much thickness at the points where the geese units met the square in a square units. I don't know another way to avoid all the thickness.
I would love for someone to share a pressing suggestion for how to aware the thick seams at points like in the yellow circle.
