|Less than a week ago, this was still a stack of blocks, so I'm very happy to have it all together, quilted, bound and even washed and ready to cross of my 2016 Finish-A-Long list! This was the first time I used Mountain Mist Cream Rose batting, so I was eager to see how it would crinkle up after washing and drying. It's very soft and drapes nicely--I'll use it again, for sure!|
|Quilting is just wavy lines with a hook (wave) thrown in occasionally using Aurifil #2310--lots of fun to quilt since it went so fast.|
|I love the little anchor fabric from Primitive Gatherings on the back!|
|The quilting shows up a bit better from the back.|
|Today has been a catch up day. |
I've been working on the 365 Challenge blocks this afternoon and also these ThimbleCreek "beach-ball"blocks. I realized that I could use the Magic Eight method to make the half square triangles since there are two sets of 8 of the same color combos in each block. That made the cutting so much easier and fast--just cutting 5" squares from four fabrics for each block. I always make a test block when I deviate from the pattern instructions just in case my figures are off--sometimes my brilliant ideas aren't so brilliant!
