Moda Bake Shop gave me the opportunity to play with Kate Spain's newest fabric line, Daydreams for my next project. The fabric should be hitting the shelves of your favorite local fabric shop this February. I fell COMPLETELY in love with this fabric line. My four-year old daughter has already claimed the quilt and I guess I will be making another one. --But that's enough talk for now...here's some photos:
|I was so infatuated with this quilt, that I tried every new and difficult machine quilting technique I possibly could on it! It was well worth the challenge.|
|I used two layers of batting to create that "puffy" look. The quilting ideas were a combination of my continuous curve & swirls method along with those I learned in a Craftsy course "Dot to Dot Quilting" by Angela Walters.|
Since this was so much work, this counts as my KISMIF (keep it simple, make it fun) FMQ (free motion quilting) post for this week. In a future KISMIF FMQ (probably February because I have yet ANOTHER quilt pattern feature to show next week) will show photo step-by-step of how to do the continuous curve cross-hatching. Until then, share something fun in the home arts you've been working on! Also, don't forget to enter the give-away!
Do you like my pattern? I've designed more! They can be viewed and downloaded at the following sponsors: My Etsy Shop (don't forget your coupon code on the LHS side bar), Craftsy, Connecting Threads and Pattern Spot. Thanks!
