|The loopy filler was fun to do and a lot faster to do than the pebbles I was first considering. I will probably do back into the orange later and quilt some more in orange thread.|
The sampler shows so many different uses of ruler work (using rulers to guide free motion quilting) and has been a lot of fun. It also has been a nice return to piecing, something that I don't do much of and really I enjoyed on this project.
|Look at how the markings on the circle help with the placement of the curve. The etched markings line up with the triangle in the bottom left.|
I used this quilt in one of my lessons of my soon to be released Craftsy class, Quilting with Rulers on a Home Machine. I am really hoping to get it posted as one of the first projects shared with the class on the Craftsy platform.
I decided that I don't like the continuous curves I stitched in the small squares of this block, above. So I'll be ripping them out. I only did 3 before realizing it was taking away from the piecing of this block. So it got SID and continuous curves in the 4 larger squares.
I don't think it will happen unless my release date is delayed as I leave for San Antonio in the wee hours of Tuesday for a week-long Janome dealers event. Plus I fully expect to be made an auntie sometime in the next two weeks. But I just keep stitching when I can.
I'll be telling you a little more about my Craftsy trip from July this week and also about my plans to open an online shop so you an easily purchase the different rulers and other supplies that I use and love, all in one convenient place.
Stitch on, my quilty friends!
