I finished piecing together the wall hanging quilt that I'm making for my boyfriend's grandparents. I didn't smooth it out on my design wall so it looks a little bubbly but that's okay! The top pair of blocks is a fair colour departure from the rest, but in real life it looks more cohesive. And I have a very limited stash to pull from!
The beauty of a small quilt is that I could sandwich and baste it on the table. Awesome! So I did just that, in very little time.
Now, the above picture is supposed to show the pattern I drew to quilt, but I used my iPhone to take the picture and the flash made it really hard to see. However, it's a sort of leaf or vine type of pattern. After I planned it out, I somehow ended up at the Free Motion Quilting Project. Oh my! Talk about inspiring!
I think that I would like to make a solely solid quilt with large pieces (maybe layer cake?) and do each square a different style of quilting from the site--it has everything from beginner to expert. I love the texture that a unique quilting pattern can lend a quilt--better get practicing though!
