I told myself I wouldn’t do this until I finished another quilt first, but its so small….it wont take long….I can do it quickly….its a good way to use up scraps….I didn’t have to buy anything new….I have a piece of wool batting that is big enough. OK enough justification, I just wanted to do it.
This little piece (20″ square) was made with leftovers
from this quilt top
and I guess I can look at this little quilt as a warm up for quilting the big one.
I made a sandwich with muslin backing and wool batting and I put in a few pins and then sewed the layers together and took out the pins. I was going to mark the top before I started quilting but then I decided to just go for it and be more free form. I am using #8 perle cotton thread and a big #5 embroidery needle and making big stitches. I am making spiraling circles and so far I think I like it.
Teddy doesn’t seem to be very interested in this one. He was taking a nap (he excels at nap time) and the camera woke him up
he always gets “bed face”
