Playing with Colour
This past Saturday I felt a great need to experiment and play with colour.(Cuz I didnt have anything else to do!!) I started with a little precut 2 1/2" square Moda Mini called Mixed Bag. With no particular pattern in mind, I just knew I wanted strips of colour so this is what I ended up with. I spaced each square of colour with a 1" strip of solid white and then I separated the strips of colour with a 2 1/2" strip of a solid white . I free-motion quilted with Wonderfil Konfetti colour K101 (white) using a 80/12 Superior Titanium topstitch needle in a loop-de-loop design and made it into a sofa cushion. I had planned on doing a binded edge but I couldnt wait to get it sewn up and stuffed with a cushion form, and on my sofa. Ends up 20" sq.
Now back to getting my son's quilt top sewn up. I have been dragging my feet on this one. I get distracted easily.
Another snowy day in Nova Scotia. Hope you get some quilty time today.
