I started quilting this mini quilt. I am quite pleased with it so far. I am leaving the stars alone but am doing some serious quilting in between. I went around each star to start with to really define the stars and then started filling in. I am quite pleased with it so far. I actually changed my free motion quilting foot from the open toe one that I have always used to the one that is a complete metal ring with a hole in the middle. I REALLY like that one and for some crazy reason, I think it works way better.
I also started a baby quilt. It is just a start. This is the fabric cut into 4" squares. Once I had it up on the wall, I decided the Kona Ash did not need to be there but I left the pale yellow solid.
And here is what it looks like so far. Nice and simple. The funny thing was that I was not sure if it was big enough so I looked up another baby quilt that I made with 4" squares and I had exactly the same number of 4" squares up on the wall. I was very intuitive about the size of a baby quilt without realizing it.
I signed up for the Sweet and Simple Scrappy Swap on Flickr and I received my secret partner information already so I can get busy with that this weekend. We need to make a drawstring bag from Jeni's drawstring bag and fill it full of fabric scraps and notion goodness.
And I leave you with our yard on Saturday before most of the snow fell. Thankfully it finally stopped last evening and the big melt began today. We were quit convinced that winter was over. But it wasn't.
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for Work in Progress Wednesday. What are you working on?
