I spent yesterday quilting two flimsies. And, I took the opportunity to keep working on my free motion quilting skills. I’m starting to feel more confident and keep better tension so that’s all good.
The first top I didn’t piece, but rather acquired it at an auction. It was from the Anne with an E TV series. If you have never watched this series, it’s based on the Anne of Green Gables books by Lucy Maud Montgomery. She’s a Canadian author, so I’m not too sure how well known those books are.
Here is the finished quilt:
I went modern on the back using a Dear Stella print. It was in the stash and it worked nicely with it
The second quilt I free motion quilted was the Smooches quilt designed by Sandra Walker. When I saw this quilt I just had to make it and and make it I did – in less than a week. I am really pleased with the free motion quilting I did on this one. While not as smooth as I want to be my skills have come a long way in the last few months.
I am planning on using black for the binding and I plan to bind it all by machine today. This one will go to a nursing home where it will be given at Christmas to a resident, some of whom don’t even have a special blanket they can call their own.
