|Pieced Home Sweet Home block|
|Stitch in the ditch from the reverse|
I used 505 basting spray and went to work stitching in the ditch all the seams (well, almost all--somehow I missed one little seam!
Now that my fmq'ing skills are coming along, I wanted them to pop against the bright fabrics and selected to do all white top and bobbin. Then I selected 11 of my favorite and new to me motifs from her class to feature in each of the 11 fabrics used to construct the Home Sweet Home block. I quilted the center in the morning before work, two more before dinner and the last two after dinner! And once again, I love the finished look!
|Reverse side all quilted|
- Frieda's feathers outside in
- Free form Scribbles
- Frog Eggs
- More Free form Scribbles (I call 'em door beads)
- Stippling (which I finally got the flow/movement down once Frieda used the term "amoeba like" which totally clicked with my biology background)
- Loop de loops
- Lava flowers
- Modern Baptist Fan
And here's the front...
|Home Sweet Home|
