Welcome to Free Motion Mavericks, week 298. We are getting ready for the 300th Week Linking Party on October 1st. It's going to be a virtual trans-Atlantic party to remember. You can read all about it below!
FMQ a sparkling star
This is the third star that was free motion quilted (FMQ) on the Pinwheels and Stars Baby Quilt. I love how it turned out!
|Lots of sparkling diamonds in this star block|
When I drew the diamonds from each star point, it turned out that two of them would meet. That meant that there wasn't any space for all of those points in the middle star - which would have been a mess anyway.
|It's easier to see the design from the back|
If I hadn't changed the thread colour in the star, it could have been a continuous design. I ended up travelling using the middle star since I thought that it would be fine if it showed up more.
- Design plans, like any other plans, can keep evolving. I'm really glad that this one got simpler. I was much more confidant about making it.
- I did quite a bit of marking and it paid off.
- I did start on Monday, just as I said that I should in my last post! It's mostly because I'm going away for a short visit and will be travelling Wednesday evening...but still, I'm following my own advice😊
- This is a really pretty design and I'm glad that it worked out.
