Roses de Noel by the Sea
Freemotion quilting is all finished!
The two designs I chose for the blocks ended up being more difficult than I anticipated, with having to continually meet in the centre to attempt a symmetrical flower set squarely in the square. As I progressed with each block I improved, I got more confident, I got excited and I enjoyed myself. I have heard so many people say that freemotioning is about practice; well I am seconding that loud and clear!
This quilt was great to make, and I love how the backing looks with all the quilting.
Some of my ok, and not-so-ok quilting!
DH really likes the overall look and feel of the quilt, wonders will never cease!
I also finished two santa sacks for two of my boys, these were an adaption of Anni's santa sack from her book A Christmas Story by Hatched and Patched. I will stitch some gold cordingonto these; but as I don't have any on hand this will have to wait. Besides; I don't think they will be closed for very long as it's not long till Santa comes now!
