Here is my latest obsession. After finishing the Bird Quilt, I was consumed with the idea of making another quilt for our house, and one that is really for David. (You know that they say, "the quilter's husband always goes cold.") I had a stash a Japanese fabric and had been eying a pack of charm squares at City Quilters for a long while, so the quilt design was pretty obvious. And if I say so myself, the charm square quilt did not disappoint.
I also got to break in my new quilting gloves that I received as a birthday present from my mom (Hi Mom!). They were terrific and I only managed to sewing my finger once.
As for the free motion quilting, I am 100% addicted. It was hard but it looks so great. I am sure my technique will improve, since I had only really practiced a few times on swatches before I dove into the full size quilt. It is all washed, puckery and on my bed, and the quilting has held up perfectly so far.
