this block turned out pretty good....I like the design and my fmq is improving....
there are only 3 more block to go and the quilt will be completed.
I am thinking of adding more block to the quilt so I can put it on a
single bed....I will wait and see how it looks....so far I am pleased with it.
Stormy, our granddaughter, is having a baby girl (John's 2nd great grandchild) in November. They are naming her Scout and I wanted to make a quilt for her. I purchased the Paradiso Quilt Kt and made this quilt which measures 41" x 45.5". I did a stippling all over the quilt. It really turned our cute. It is not a baby quilt that she will grow out of but something that she can use it as she gets bigger.
Block 7 completed. I was really happy the way this block sewed out. My HST are improving, taking more time marking and sewing them. The quilting on this block was not too bad but I did have a lot of thread cuts. I would block myself into a corner. The shells were a problem as I traced them and had to do a lot of travel stitching to complete them. Next time I will just wing the shells, no marking. I am happy with the way the block turned out. The colors are more vibrant than shown.
This is Block 6 of the Mystery Quilt. This block has alot of straight stitching that I did with the walking foot....the rest of it, the wiggly lines, etc. were done free motion. I like the way this block turned out.
Block #5 - the walking foot was used on this block for the matrix. It was a little difficult to see the curved line on the dark paisley fabric and I short stitched it and had to go back and add the line. I used Crayola Washable Markers (for kids) to mark the quilt. I washed the lines out and the block did not turn out too bad. I am happy with it...not perfect, but I am learning.
