I can finally say...It's seems like Spring today. A beautiful sunny day. Not warm but I will take it! It's above zero.
Hope to get a walk in this afternoon. This morning I spent time finishing up my scrappy cushion. You can read about how it all started here It is so cute and I just love it on my new sofa. I think I will have to make a matching table runner for the coffee table. I just realized that not all the muslin squares that I used were the same but that just adds to the charm. Scrap-a-licious! I added a 2" muslin border to each side of the block and then layered it with a lovely off white scrap piece of a good quality quilter's flannel. Then I quilted straight lines, in free-motion, in the ditch and continued into the borders. First time I tried doing the FM straight lines and I just loved it. I will definitely be using this method in the future. This may be a solution for quilters who find that using a walking foot when doing straight line quilting is causing puckering. Keep your eye on where you want to go and not on the needle. Give it a try. See if you find a difference.
Hope you are getting some quilting done today!
