An Anna Maria Horner Swap Option Two
I kind of like the last quilt too much to give away, so I needed a back-up plan and this one is it.
If my partner expresses a preference on Instagram, that's fine. If she doesn't, she's getting this one.
It's a very fun block to make using the Triangler ruler and just the right size for a mini quilt.
I used Perle cotton on the star block, a combination of running and chain stitch and then switched to my sewing machine to densely free motion quilt the space. (I would say 'negative space' but that starts to sound modern which I'm not. I think.)
That was actually really fun as I treated each section completely different and just 'drew' whatever came into my head.
Within reason of course.
Some things are best kept in your head.
How can anyone one not like brown when it looks as beautiful as it does in these fabrics?
And the back.
I got carried away and did a video for Instagram to try and show the texture of the quilting off. Then I discovered you can only upload 15 seconds worth.
So here's the longer version (not sure why it doesn't cover the full screen though) - popcorn is optional.
