I am working on my second large sized quilt right now which I will be giving to a friend of mine for her graduation in May. I'm hoping that particular friend doesn't find out about this blog because I'm posting pictures of her quilt. :-) This time I decided to use a pattern from "Quick and Easy Romantic Quilts" that consists of stars, rectangles and squares. The pieces are very large compared to the last quilt I did, and it was fun to see how quickly the top pieced together. It was kind of like an instant gratification quilt top. :-) Before I started I practiced some Free Motion Quilting with my darning foot because that is the technique I will be using. It was fun and challenging and I'm excited to see how it will work on a full quilt. Below is a picture of that practice piece.
I expanded my table in my kitchen by using two leaves I had stored away at my parents' house and now I can do cutting at home- although it is more fun to do that with my mom.
