Tomorrow is when I finally get to try out those 11+" in a FMQ fest, quilting first the Scrappy rainbow quilt and then Space dust. I have been drawing and drawing my designs, in the vain hope that my little brain will develop some sort of muscle memory.
So today I put needle to fabric and practiced on a cushion cover that I was going to enter into this round of X-Factor Pillows, but decided wasn't round enough/good enough.
The block is from the 'Curve it up' QAL using the Quick curve ruler and I just turned the log cabin blocks so it became round(ish).
I used two layers of cotton/bamboo mix wadding, to make the quilting stand out more. Channelling my inner Angela Walters again, I practiced custom quilting the log cabin blocks with wavy lines, wishbones, pebbles etc. Then I used the walking foot to quilt concentric circles around the border.
