I've been quilting. I have a project going on. Details of which I can't fully divulge now. Some friends found out what I was planning, then they elaborated on it for me by sending 'kits' for children's quilts, fabric, quilt blocks, and even money to help with the project. I have made five quilts (albeit small) in just a few weeks. Some were already pieced, some fabrics to coordinate, two I dug around in my stash and came up with something.
They are all machine quilted on my regular sewing machine...no mid-arm or long-arm quilter.
I played with this one more adding more quilting. The center section is basically straight line quilting with a few swirls following the pattern. Flowers are quilted in the pink cornerstones with an all over quilting pattern in that pale pink border. The entire outer border and cornerstones are a large meandering.
I love this fish quilt. I used the sunflower quilt pattern located here http://www.fabricfreedom.co.uk/QuiltsAndProjects.html but went shopping in my stash. I made the top, then using a fusible, fused the fish directly on the top in a random pattern. After edgestitching them down, I layered the quilt and quilted in slightly wavy lines across the quilt representing (in my mind anyway) ocean currents. This is a fun quilt!
In a week or so, I will tell the 'rest of the story.'
