I made this necklace for the Art Bead Scene blogspot July challenge based on Picasso's Portrait of Olga.

I've made quite a bit of progress on the baby quilt.  For the patches with the blue dots I decided to use a linear quilting stitch.  I like the contrast of linear with dots and spirals with stripes.  I'm doing outline and echo quilting on the penguin patches.

Baby Quilt Woes

Hello All,

I've been free motion quilting spirals on the baby quilt and I discovered a wrinkle on the back.Oh no!

The front looks better.

And I've tried out Leah Day's little tongues.  I like the stitch.  My photo didn't come out very well though.

Working on the baby quilt.  Apparently I didn't thread the bobbin properly.  What a mess!  I did manage to save most of it.  At least I can use it for hand sewing.

Having Fun with Free Motion Quilting

I'm a big fan of Leah Day's Free Motion Quilting project.  I bought a special quilting foot for my Bernina 330 at Sanford Sewing Machine and took a Free Motion Quilting class.  It's a cheater panel and I just stitched around the design to start.  After I got it home and worked on it some more, I made an oops because I don't like to use pins when I sew and I had removed the pin at the outer edge.  Unfortunately I didn't notice the backing fabric had folded back on itself. so I had to rip out some stitching.
