Although not one of my older projects, this is one begun this past January. I guess I kind of lost interest as I started the quilting in the center blocks, but didn’t know what to do next. Same old story, huh! Anyway, I was motivated to move it off the shelf.
This square runner features stamping from my “Jamaican” styled flower stamp, carved last summer, which I used in lots of postcards. (Still have some of those to finish, too!) It also features one of my favorite things to free motion ~ a free motion zig zag, which I describe as the ‘confetti’ stitch. When I taught a free motion class recently, I showed it to my students, using this piece to demonstrate it in class. It’s a very simple thing. Fun! Happy. Colorful. Easy to do. I basically switch from a straight stitch, to a zig zag, free motion, and back and forth. It’s quite seamless with temporary altered stitch memory on Bernina machines. Once the stitch width is set for the zig zag, it is just a matter of one touch on the button or screen, and going back and forth!
Also, the stamped blocks are pieced with gold fabric, in which the center block has these words quilted, around the perimeter, with a flower in the center:
It will be listed in my Etsy shop, soon!
The outside border is hand dyed fabric I bought from Laura Wasilowski, of Artfabrik.com, several years ago.
And now it’s finished! Happy sigh!
Thank you for stopping in. Have a great Thursday!
