Still twisting the blocks and the designs are still looking good. I think they all look very modern and stylish. I’ll have to finish a few ufo’s and get to work!

Blooms Quilt 3

Let’s twist those blocks some more. I’m still happy.

I’d like to see what happens when I rotate the blocks. Still good!

Just some fun with a couple of blocks. I quite like this design.

I really like the interlocking effect of the blocks in this design.

Then I wanted to see what the highlight fabric might look like in the middle of the alternate blocks.

Probably too busy, I think I prefer the first one after all!

Oh I’m loving this one. What’s not to like?  I think I’m doing too much quilt dreaming again!

Thanks Judy B for the fabrics, I think I borrowed some or all of them from one of your projects! Sometimes I just like to see what the designs look like with a selection of fabrics I would never have thought of.

I think it’s an interesting design. I quite like the secondary ‘grid’ pattern.

Crystals Quilt

Quite a pretty design with room for quilting motifs in the ’empty’ spaces.

I’ve been nominated to quilt the border of a quilt for a woman who has been experiencing difficulties. I’ve gone back to my old free motion quilting design favourite of daisies, vines and loops. It really looks lovely and in this case adds a textural element to the polyester wadding. I don’t normally buy or use polyester wadding/batting. I don’t like it, it isn’t really great for machine quilting as it does not tend to ‘stick’ to the fabric and can create many challenges. I also find it tends to ‘stiffen’ with free motion quilting and loses its draping ability. It does however, make it easier for you to see my quilting in this intance. The border fabric  is pale mauve and I’m using a cream thread. I’ve decided to quilt a design in the 20 blocks as well to try and soften their differences, this may change if I run out of time patience but as I’ve already completed four blocks I don’t really think this will be an option.

There are a couple of free motion quilting quiltalongs running at the moment and I’m thinking about playing along. One is with SewCalGal and this month’s challenge is free motion plumes with Diane Gaudynski. I’m hoping to have time to ‘play’ with this idea later in the week.
