I have been so busy lately (trying to get my Christmas quilts finished and battling a nasty cold for 3 weeks) I have not had time to blog. I am thrilled to say that both Xmas quilts have been completed and shipped off which gives me FAL finishes number 6 and 7. So I don’t spoil the surprise, I will have to hold off on the full ‘ta-da’ posts until after the boxes are opened Christmas morning. Here are a few closeups of the FMQ. I used wool batting on Tropical Punch to give it a beautiful loft. I only quilted the orange/yellow centres and just did some stitch in the ditch around the blue/green fabrics.
For the second quilt I did some trapunto work to make the main feature of the quilt stand out and then just did some dense freehand quilting in the background to make it pop even more.
I finally got my 2012 block-of-the-month ‘Opera’ on the frame. I needs to be done by the end of the year so that it qualifies for the January quilt show.
