Blur your eyes, please
Ok, don't laugh too hard at me, will you? I'm laughing a bit, myself, so it's ok if you laugh a little. Look (but not too closely) at these completely unmatching corners!
This was a quick doll quilt, a continuation of the quilt wall for Tsia's room (did you see the results of Hillary's work? It's so beautiful, and just it time for the arrival of beautiful little Phoebe!). I had leftover pink bits from a few other projects--mostly triangles--and I wanted to do a flying geese quilt, but this was faster.
I was careful with my cutting and piecing, so don't ask how the corners are so severely mis-matched. But I thought that a little stippling might draw attention away from my shoddy work, and it gave me a good excuse to practice free-motion stitching with the new machine. Fun! It certainly requires some concentration and frequent breaks for the relaxing of tensed-up shoulders, though I'm sure the more you practice the easier it becomes.
Oh, and you must see this lovely backpack, created by India in a fabulous toile. Terrific, isn't it? It's so exciting to see the bags in their finished state; please be sure to add your photos to the Flickr group so I can get my thrills, will you?
