Design Wall Monday

I am making slow but steady progress on my City Sampler blocks. 

 

I am really enjoying working with solids here!

QOV week is also in full swing here. I finished another yesterday. This top was made by Joan from the Stitching Sisters group. 

 

I quilted a freehand swirled feather design on this one. It was a nice break from pantographs. I thought it would be faster too. Nope! I can’t keep myself from close quilting!  

 

The backing is actually navy blue but this picture shows the quilting well so I will include it as well. 

 I used Premosoft thread from Fil-Tec.  The next top is loaded and I hope to get this one done today. 

I really like this pattern, simply sewn from strips with stars machine appliquéd. It was made by Susan, also from the SS group.

Time to get quilting! Linking up with Patchwork Times for DWMonday.

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    How do you like you Avante machine? Do you find it does what you need it to do or would you prefer to have a larger machine like a APQS or Gammill. If I were to win the lottery I would buy a machine but wonder what would be best. It is nice to get others opinions that have these machines. Thanks
