{ jan 2 }

So, here is the kitchen quilt I was telling you about yesterday. It's quilted, bound & hung! I based this quilt on a pattern from This and That Patterns called Pickin Wildflowers. However, I wanted my quilt to be a lot larger than the pattern so I came up with the brilliant idea of just doubling the size of each cut piece. It didn't exactly work as planned so I had to fiddle-fart around with it by trimming extra bits off here and there to get it to all fit together. In the end I think it came out quite nicely, though!
Here's a close up of my FMQ (free motion quilting). The fabric is Blossom by Moda.
The pie is apple, by Scott.
That's all for today. I hope you have a nice weekend! Check back tomorrow because I will be showing you the beautiful ________ my Dad made me! If you are a quilter you will be jealous for sure.
