It never ceases to amaze me how quilting transforms a quilt top. Today I finished quilting my Santa wallhanging. I stitched around the Santas and trees with my walking foot then got down to the really fun part - free motion. I found this sooo hard to start with but it is getting easier and I can be a bit more relaxed. I'm trying to stretch myself by attempting new quilting designs so I tried some curls on the border and was quite pleased with the result.
I came across a new quiltalong today. This one will concentrate on the quilting rather than piecing so it sounds right up my street. Check out 'A Few Scraps' to find out more about the quiltalong and a giveaway. Also during my 'research' session I found the Brown Bag Quilt Contest. This does sound fun! The idea is to parcel up a a total of 2 yards of fabric from your stash to swap then make a quilt with the fabric you receive. I might have a go at this one too!
