|my new "go to" quilting design--practice drawing on left|
|quilting on the finished "Etchings" quilt--medium gray thread|
I like this design. It's simple, fills in spaces, and it's not just a curvy, meandering line. It worked well. It was labeled by ruby50 as "my go-to machine quilting pattern." It may be mine too.
If a quilting design passes my drawing-with-a-finger test, then I practice on transparency sheets. Remember those? They were used on an overhead projector in a school class or a meeting -- before Power Point presentations. I have an unused box of those heavy plastic sheets, plus the special marking pens. Just a little water to wash off marks, and I can use them again and again.
|ALL DONE -- ready for giveaway at work|
Two finishes this weekend. Both are ready for a giveaway at work this coming week. Bonnie Hunter's "Bricks and Stepping Stones" pattern on the left of this photo, made from flannels.
On the right, the Moda "Etchings" finished quilt.
