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.
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!!!
