I am linking in with Naptime Quilter’s Workshop in Progress.
First, I would like to say a “Thank You!” to Cheryl for putting this together. It has helped me immensely. All of your advice has been gratefully received.
Two weeks ago, I posted a question about PFD (Prepared for dyeing) fabric, and thank you for all of your comments. I felt confident cutting into that fabric and was able to begin making my half square triangles. I am basically doing a “stash buster” where I’m trying to use as much of the fabric I have on hand as possible without going back to the store. So far, so good I have made and squared up all of my HST’s and I have sewn 6 out of 22 rows (of 18) together.
I have also been working on making paper piecing templates for my block “Bursting Star” and a new block “Bursting diamond.” I hope to have these up in PDF format soon, but I first want to make a whole quilt using these style of blocks, so stay tuned…
And currently in my machine is a project that has been begging to be finished for almost a year.
This quilt was inspired by Red Pepper Quilt’s Modern Flying Geese quilt. I was stuck at deciding how to quilt this thing. Meandering? Some other free motion quilting pattern? Straight stitch? A combination? Well, I’ve started, but I’m not yet complete. Right now, I just have the two lines next to the top of the triangles.
I’m still debating on whether to add more lines (and wavy lines) parallel with the zig zag lines, or should I fill in the large zig-zag spaces with free motion meandering? Either way would look cool on the back, but I think adding more lines would look the best. The jury is still out. What do you think?
Edited to add: I decided just to stick with the two lines of quilting, but I have another question. What charities are accepting donated quilts? I think I might just donate this one…
