Happy Friday!! I have some small finishes to share today, but even though they're small...I love them big. ;)
When you're working for hours on a more difficult project, do you ever need to take a break to just sew something, anything that's different? I do! The Tree Memory Quilt I'm working on is coming along famously, but one afternoon...I just NEEDED something else. So...I made these pretties!
I used Kate Spain's Grand Canal from Moda, along with Kona Solids in Ash and Charcoal. I've had 8-point stars and flying geese on the brain lately, so that's what I channeled.
This first one was particularly fun, because, on a whim, I decided to quilt around the buildings in the center so they stand out. ^_^
I LOVE the second one though. Those gold and blue mosaic flowers on the navy...*swoon*
I have discovered the importance of quilting on the corners, even if it's just a simple straight line. This makes it immensely easier to stop the fabric puckering and folding when attaching the binding.
Finally, I just had to add some matching quilted coasters to the mix. It's not my fault Kate Spain has this darling print in 4 colorways, right?
I had a lot of fun quilting these with narrow, random wavy lines. I'm really happy with how they came out.
I think they feel like spring. <3
I absolutely love making these potholders...I get the entire quilting process done in a short period of time, then I get to enjoy those satisfaction of a finish.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Have an awesome day!
