For students' first free motion quilting, I suggest they write their name and date on their fat quarter-sized quilt sandwich.
That information is good for documenting improvements in the future.
I'll teach at the Lifelong Learning College again in September. For more information, click on the "Teaching Schedule" tab at the top of this blog.
A recent finish is this 11-1/2" X 13" mini. It's improv, hand-appliqué, domestic machine quilted.
The shapes were scissor-cut from solid fabrics - no drawing. Then needle-turn appliquéd to the Kona Ash background. Oval spiral quilting is a nice change from circles.
For the first time, I faced a quilt. It makes a nice finish for the right quilt top. I like that I could leave openings for hanging with a wooden dowel. Backing fabric is "Good Neighbors" by Amanda Jean of CrazyMomQuilts, purchased at Connecting Threads.
