I am excited to be posting 2 finishes this week!
Snowy Days Quilting. The pattern is called "Stars at sea" and was part of "QAL by the sea".
The hardest part was cutting out and organizing the 86 pieces for the 12" block.
The easiest part was picking the thread colours for quilting. Blue thread in the background sky and yellow or gold thread for the stars.
I machine quilted the star blocks with straight lines using the free motion foot. It's always a challenge for me to quilt a project evenly and not "over quilt" some areas. I quilted a few random radiating lines in the background to help the quilt lay flatter, and was careful to stop when it was "enough".
I was so pleased with that starry blue batik that I found in the stash for the background of this starry night mini quilt, but it was difficult to accurately photograph and looks a little different in each photo.
Finished size"12.5" x 12.5"
Hop over to The Constant Quilter to see more mini quilts made this month.
