I will have them all starched and ready to cut next week!! I am going to be using the Creative Grids 12" 60 degree ruler. No, I'm not going to make 12" triangles but it is the ruler I used for the Log Cabin Triangle quilt and cutting the smaller triangles for the center in those 'blocks' was a snap.
I am still quilting the Log Cabin quilt. It is looking awesome! Want to see a peak? Well, OK, but just a peak :)
|Never ceases to amaze me how quilting changes the look of a quilt top!!|
When I decided on the quilting for this, I thought it would go pretty quickly. . . not so much! The quilting is pretty dense on this one and there is a lot of ditch stitching - I can think of other names for it! grin I am doing everything, including the SID with the free motion foot. I have been quilting pretty much all day for two days. . . It has been awhile since I did quilting in free motion and I have to say - I am having a blast! And as I go along, I can see improvements from triangle to triangle. This is good! :) I really need to start putting aside a little time each day to just practice FMQ when I am piecing. Keep those skills toned :)
I am off to finish quilting! I am really hoping to have this finished binding and all by the end of the weekend :) Stay tuned for the big reveal!
Linking up with Paula over at The Sassy Quilter for the fabric selection portion of the QAL.and Kim at My Go-Go Life for SewJo Saturday.
Until next time, keep on quilting!
