Last night I sewed along with friends on the Friday night with friends face book page, and the task I set for myself was to quilt my pin wheel lap quilt.
I decided as this was a little quilt it was time to be adventurous and experiment.
So…….. I bravely tried my first ever feathers, completely by free motion, with out first drawing a pattern. Here is one of the first four stemming up from the centre to the inner border.
I then did daisy petals on each of the eight triangles that made up the pinwheels, and I have to say that I am not all that happy with these. I should have just shadow quilted the triangles. Then I finished off with a large stipple on the purple peeper border and outer border.
Here it is over the arm of my sofa waiting for me to hand stitch the binding tonight.
I received this pattern from a swap partner some time ago and made one which I have since gifted. I had some odd scraps of Saffron Craig birds left over from some bags that I made, perfect for fussy cutting the little purse.
