This was a fun technique, definitely need to try it again, I like how the card turned out, but maybe because of the colors I chose – nothing POPS to me. I used the new Whimsical Wishes set. You should play along with the challenges there posted every Monday and Friday – you could win FREE Gina K stamps valued up to $24.95!
We are nearing the last week in the Quilt Class I’m taking so I thought I’d share what my quilt top looks like after I quilted it last weekend– it’s decent for my first time but I did have a little (big) mishap with the direction of my quilting, I didn’t turn it like I should have and when I did, I ended up getting a bunched up area around the middle I’m sure you can see it! But, like I said it’s my first quilt, my LEARNING quilt – I’m SURE my 2nd one will turn out much better! I’m already looking forward to making the next one!
Here is the back, I chose to use blue for the color. The binding will be a bright orange, a co-worker I showed it to yesterday said I did a good job for my 1st one! And this is in spite of a LOT of the half square triangles not lining up very well! I decided to stitch in the ditch for this quilt and not do any hand quilting, I will do something more complex with my future ones since this is my first one.
I have to go – we have a meeting to attend for John’s continuing education in his field of work. I will post again before the weekend is over, I have SO much to share, including our 14th wedding anniversary celebrations which were this past Wednesday!
Thanks for stopping by!!
