But while browsing through Pinterest (I just love looking at all the pictures on Pinterest...lots of inspiration) I saw a picture of what looked to be a simple quilt that had been made with a layer cake.
So following the instructions I posted in my last entry, I made this simple quilt with the Sasparilla layer cake that I had.
It is windy today as you can tell by the quilt blowing!I pieced together some fabric that I have had in my stash for several years. I can't even remember why I purchased it now. But I know that my tastes must have changed and that I would not be using it in a top, so I thought as a backing would work well with this quilt.
As I mentioned in my last blog entry...I wanted to break out of my comfort zone and start using different quilting designs. I have been comfortable with the loopy design and the stippling, but there are so many more machine quilting designs out there and they look good when I see what others are doing.
So, I decided that this would be a good project to practice some other free motion quilt designs on.
I used straight lines, wavy lines, loopy loops, stippling, figure eights, and others.
And I must say that it made me happy to break out of my comfort zone and try something new...Whoop-Whoop!
I even discovered some new designs that I really enjoyed making while trying something new.
I would like to hear what makes you happy! Join me on Whoop-Whoop Friday!
