|I love how the afternoon light plays across the quilt|
This quilt is called Sprout as it looks like the new shoots that come up in the spring, which is when I started this project.
I saw a quilt that was paper pieced using these shapes but it looked too uniform to me so I freehand cut these and sewed them together.
I used to think my machine quilting wasn't too bad but I am out of practice and it is not too good. If you look above the veins in the leaves are anything but the same. While not horrible, it's not great either. Obviously I can't make the same shape on both sides!
The ones in the medium toned fabrics look good but if you look at this one in the white, EVERYTHING shows up and this was a particularly off one. I should have warmed up before I started quilting on this that day.
Overall I like the effect and it's done! The swirly things in the triangle part are just OK but I couldn't think of what else to put in there.
I like the end of day sun that is shining on the quilt.
These are absolutely addictive to make and I am enjoying them so much Every time I have to pick 3 fabrics that look good together. It's harder than you think.....they finish at 5"!
|I loved how the white pumpkins turned out!|
|I love the top skull with the bleeding eye!|
I bought this bouquet from my friend Jean who is moving. I added the border fabric and finished it into a mini quilt. This will be in our guild quilt show as a raffle quilt, stay tuned!
I am deep into my UFO's and hopefully will have more to show you soon!
