I decided my August OMG would be for a “big girl” quilt. I would use a pattern with “real blocks” something I haven’t normally done. Here is my goal setting post, August OMG.
Here are a few of the blocks in the beginning. Once I got moving along, I didn’t take any other pictures until it was finished. When I first chose the pattern and was putting together the blocks, I really saw the stars. It wasn’t until I was taking pictures of the finish that I say the circles. Talk about tunnel vision.
I used the remaining bright fabric for a strip down the backing. It turned out rather cute, breaking up the plain back.
On my last quilt, I ventured off the straight line walking foot quilting. Not very far off, but you can see my wavy line Brighten Up. So I went a bit (small bit) farther from there and did a cross hatch of wavy lines for this quilt.
It shows up much better on the backing piece ( along with a few thread scraps).
It really gave the quilt some easy to add texture. I just used a wavy stitch with the walking foot and used the edge of the foot for spacing of the lines. This may be my new favorite for quilting, at least for a bit.
I am linking up with a few friends today:
