Ok. Quick update on the quilt via Confessions of a Fabric Addict's Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?!
The baby is done. Little Edward Job was born Monday, Valentine's Day, about 2:30 in the afternoon. He and his mama are doing fine. I'm just so tickled that he turned out to be a Valentine's Baby! He is named after his father and for the biblical man Job who endured many trials and still served and loved the Lord. It's an unusual middle name, but it fits this family who have endured some trials along the way.
Now on to the quilt. It is sandwiched and ready to quilt. I did some looking around online and found a pinwheel quilt that had a curvy design quilted into the pinwheel blocks, so that is what I'm going to do. I'm in the process of drawing the curves into the blocks using a dish from my kitchen. I hope to get all of the quilting done this weekend so I can bind it and mail it early next week.
Here you can see the wavy design - the light blue lines. I think it adds a nice motion to the pinwheels.
Here's my template! I wanted an elongated oval shape.
I've also been practicing my free-motion quilting, and I'm actually learning a little better control! Don't look for any sort of pattern in this; it's just my doodling around with no care for how it looked.
And this is a sneak peek of the project I'm working on for my sister. I started it about 3 weeks ago, and have only gotten a tiny bit of it done.
