Since I am getting ready to quilt my Friendship x and + quilt, I decided that it might be a good idea to brush up on my free-motion quilting skills. I found this cheerful quilt top in my sewing closet....ready and waiting to become a quilting sampler!The inspirational Angela Walters was the guest speaker at one of my quilt guilds this month so I wanted to try out a couple of her ideas. The No-Mark book is a recent addition to my quilting library. (I use pre-wound bobbins when I quilt. Do you?)
Both books gave me ideas for some simple shapes...the kind that this "Utilitarian Quilter" might be able to handle.
Right now, I don't have a certain purpose in mind for this quilt...perhaps I will donate it to charity. Where ever it ends up, the quilting on it will be interesting, let's just say... I probably tried a half dozen different designs on it!
Stop by tomorrow to see the finish!
