Project Quilting 13.2

I posted a photo last night but this morning I’m updating to add better photos. Can I just say how grateful I am for the work Kim and everyone put into putting on Project Quilting because I would not have made time for this quilt without the Silhouette prompt? And, honestly, I love, love, love how this came out! I didn’t go for a big quilt this week but it still finished at about 30×45″. I made my sunset background by laying out strips from my 2″ scrap strip drawer (thank you, Bonnie Hunter for the Scrap Users’ System!) If they were too short, I just added a few smalled pieces and joined them with a mitered join. I had this thought that I’d miter all in the same angle but, well, that didn’t work and I’m glad of it. I think the random angles give it a lot more movement.

I decided to try some new things with the quilting on this, too. Even though I’ve had my Grace 21 Pro for over a year, I still feel like a newbie. Rather than using one thread color, I used three different colors in the sunset and played with echoing and wavy lines.

This is last night’s photo…it’s amazing what better light will do!

So, now that I’m done with the challenge, I’ve got a bit of housework to catch up on and a cool project to finish for the Polar Bear Plunge…and, I need to catch up on the scrap blog hop….sew much fun!!!
