Just thought I would share something I was working on last weekend. I had initially intended to quilt this alot more than I have to showcase the quilting, but as it progressed, I really liked the puffy texture that had been created by the dense pebbling in the on point squares so I decided to leave the background unquilted except for the outlining of each circle. I am very pleased with the results and it was alot of fun to quilt !!!!
I pieced this last summer so not all of the piece work was completed in a weekend, it took considerably longer than that to strip piece the striped squares, and to cut out all of the circles from the blocks, which then resulted in a big hole to be covered by a larger circle which I then machine appliqued. I don't like to waste my fabrics, by covering them up and having two layers, especially batiks !!!
I apologise for my photography though - I really could do with taking a photography course especially regarding lighting !!!!
