So, this is a rather long post as it was quite a journey of quilt learning for me.
I added the green floral which was a dress that I made, the apple green from the Big Ass Cat, and the yellow plaid which was a second-hand sheet I used for the back of a quilt.
I arranged the HST blocks on a piece of flannel.
I started auditioning scraps.
And I found some orphan blocks and a Spoonflower sample fabric.
Improv piecing can be fun, but doesn't always have the outcome I'd imagined.
I wanted it to be larger, but 60" x 74" makes a decent lap quilt.
square flower by Lori Kennedy. After the second design of hers that I randomly picked from a google search of designs, I started following her at The Inbox Jaunt.
5 spools gone and 2 more skinnyfied.
(There are still 5 spools in the stash in other colors so there will be more complaining on this topic. )
A zen moment when I actually felt like I was a really good machine quilter.
