First Finish From the Q3 List


This is the resulting table runner I made after having tested the Mod Citrus pattern for Sew Kind of Wonderful. Using the Quick Curve Ruler to make the orange peel blocks is a smart technique, avoiding doing them in applique.


I quilted the green leaves with my walking foot, and I love the echoing texture. The orange flower was free motion quilted with pebbles around the edges. The background has dense stippling to make the orange peel blocks stand out.

This is the first finish from my 2017 FAL Q3 list .


Keep on quilting!

2017 Finish-A-Long :: Q3 List


Last quarter I only managed to finish one of the projects on my list. Let's see whether I can increase that number this time from my Q3 Finish-A-Long list.


My first goal is continued from the first quarter, and is to assemble the 24 blocks of the Modern HST Sampler, add a border and quilt it.


 Goal number two is to make a quilt out of these Bee blocks from last year. I will need to make a few extra blocks to get a decent sized quilt.


The third and last goal is to finish the quilting of this table runner, and put the binding on it.
I was lucky to be one of the pattern testers for the Mod Citrus pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful, and I chose to make a table runner of my test blocks.

Keep on quilting!
