First I need to shamelessly point out all of the changes that I made to my blog last night, just in case you don't notice! hehe What do you think? It honestly felt like it took me forever, but was so long overdue! I still have lots to add/change/update, but I think it looks less messy and much more colorful, so I'm happy. :) And, I want to say thank you for all the well wishes you left me on my Riley Blake news! We're very excited!
Today I have a little Valentine's mini quilt progress to share...
I started quilting it and quickly became very stuck? My plan has always been to piece the quilt top and then to do some sketch-y type quilting with black thread, similar to the way I've done fmq over my applique pillows. After I added the black stitching, it still looked very plain and I knew I needed to add more quilting in all that aqua space. Thankfully Jacey was there to help!
I do like the way the back looks like a simple drawing!
I decided to keep it simple and add some swirly designs throughout the sky.
What do you think? What would you have done?
I'm still not sure if I should be done with the quilting, but I have some time to figure it out while I wait for my binding fabric to arrive. I look forward to hearing your ideas!
It's starting to look like Valentine's Day in my favorite corner!
I'm off to finish up this weeks birthday crown orders and then work on my Scrappy Quilt! I can't wait to show you how that one's coming together!!
p.s. Tomorrow I'll be having a new fabric giveaway sponsored by Moona Fabrics! Here's a peek. Be sure to stop back!!
