The last week was very busy and very happy. Graduation, two big birthdays, and to top it all , a new baby girl in our family! My son and daughter in law had a lovely little girl, Mazal Tov (congratulations in Hebrew) and welcome to the world, may you have a long and happy life!
Now I really have to move on with my "secret projects" which are not secret anymore. I have two days to start and finish a baby quilt and I already started a small play mat for Y the big brother (he's 3).
A while back I fell in love with this cute panel - Wild Friends by lesley grainger for Robert Kaufman.
I decided to use it as is and free quilt around the pictures. For this I had to learn free motion quilting, and I must say I much prefer straight quilting. As you can see I have to improve a lot, maybe with experience.
I still need to quilt between the pictures, I haven't decide whether to do straight line or stippling (which I never done before). What do you think?
Except for the quilt for the baby girl, for which I didn't even pull out fabrics, I have another WIP. I want to make two pillow cases from the leftover blocks of the Sunshine and Candy quilt.
I decided to shelve the pillow case from last week, and this was a big move forward (I got unstuck!). I think it's very important to learn how to cut your loses and move ahead, in quilting and in life as well.
I'm linking to Betsy's blog, thanks for hosting this week, and to Lee from Freshly Pieced the great organizer. May you all have a great week.
