First, a finished project!
My tiny double hourglass pillow is done!
I made up this smaller version of a double hourglass quilt to try circular quilting.
I wanted to see how I liked it prior to quilting my large double hourglass.
Conclusion: I love the circular quilting on these squares.
And I have fallen in love with hand quilting.
So I'm going to go for it on the big quilt -- 1 square done, 55 to go!
Thanks to everyone for your advice last week about the circles and hand quilting.
I've been working on these pennant blocks, too.
I decided to QAYG after reading Rachel's recent post on Stitched in Color.
So I did some FMQ stippling in the white portion of the blocks.
When I piece the entire quilt, I'll do some straight line quilting on the borders.
I made up 2 fish blocks with these dots, so far.
I'm trying to teach myself how to paper piece. I fell in love with this block from Poppyprint (pattern found at Quilters Cache), and MUST make this someday! The paper piecing pattern on this site is free, and they have a beginning lesson/tutorial that they recommend that you try first. It was not nearly as difficult as I had imagined. These cute little blocks finish at about 4.5 inches square, so either I'm going to need alot of these, or I'll add some borders.
Last project (that I have photos of!): the charm square tumbler quilt from Moda Bake Shop. A great little project. Fairly quick to piece, and I think it will be fun to quilt. When I get around to it!
