Recently I was a pattern tester for Ruth at Charly and Ben’s Crafty Corner blog for her pattern of Kenny Koala. Here is my panel of her pattern. I enjoyed piecing it.
Then I decided to change the bottom strip and pieced blocks. I think it looks like he is under a quilt. Now I am searching for the right border fabric.
Today I did some free-motion quilting on my 2nd Star Gazing quilt. I have already meandered on the neutral areas and wanted a focus motif for the colored irregular diamonds. I like a diamond design from Angela Walters’ book, Shape by Shape: Collection 2.I wondered how the motif would work since the shape I am quilting is irregular. First I practiced on a plastic shape then on plexiglass over my quilt.
I have many more to quilt, but here is one of the center diamond shape quilted. I used a burgunday thread so it does not show up very well.
Hope you get to enjoy some sewing or quilting time.
