With the realisation that the month is nearly over and I have yet to find the time to buy batting, I think it is safe to say Madelyn's quilt will remain on the backburner for a little bit longer. I could rush it through with some straight line quilting, but I think it might be the perfect canvas for some new (to me) quilting techniques, and given that I will be looking at it every day, I don't want to think "If only I had..." The borders scream out for some free motion, don't you think?
I have finished my February Lucky Star I showed you last week:
Made a dress for my little girl, and cut out another:
(Seriously excited about this one - couldn't fathom a more perfect fabric and pattern combo!)
And started on a cushion to test out the pattern I want to make the AIP quilt with. I am using a 4" block, however the quilt will be done with a 7" block. I didn't have many scraps left big enough for the 7" size, and wanted to use my cherished Central Park leftovers. This will have pride of place on my lounge, along with the matching Blockapalooza quilt (that is waiting on final borders).
Next weeks goals:
- Sew up another dress for my girl
- Finish piecing my Central Park cushion top
- Frolic on some fabric to practice FMQ
