It's been a little slow around here in the crafting department. I did find some time to putter around the house in between work and tax preparation. : P
I still stink at free motion quilting, but you can't blame a gal for trying. Here's my little practice piece.
Hearts on a Wire miniature for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. Sweet Amy at Diary of a Quilter made the cutest Valentine's Day pillow and gave me permission to use her heart idea for a mini for the AAQI charity. I pieced the background with my white on white scraps. I always forget how the iron leaves gray marks on the printed part. It doesn't wash out very well either. Any tips on avoiding that?
Then I started playing with solids to make another quilt for AAQI.
This mini is supposed to feature free motion quilting for a swap. I'm going to take some deep breaths before I fill in the white space. Or drink wine. I read that helps and I'm all about learning this technique.
