Back from the cottage, back to work, back to the sewing machine. I have made this scrappy star for the Modern Quilt Guild fabric challenge using Kona Iron. This will be the centre of a baby size quilt. My personal challenge for this round is:
1. use all the fabrics (ok, I’ve done that)
2. something with lots of negative space for free motion quilting (next step)
If you enjoy fabric challenges, and you are in the US or Canada, you may want to head over to Thread Riding Hood for a chance to win 6 fat quarters to sew into something fabulous.
Before I went away I sewed up these super curved log cabin blocks for Carly for May in the Canadians Quilt Bee. It was my first time for curved seams in quilt blocks (although I’ve made lots of garments with them) so while I was on a roll I made two. Carly is planning on adding another round of her background and squaring then up, but they would also work to applique onto a background. My month for this bee is June so I will have a tutorial up on Saturday (wait, what happened to May?).
I am doing a few stitches every day on the binding for my Easy Street quilt, hopefully it will be done soon.
