Having fun with quilting designs

May 29, 2013 2 Comments

Hello Everyone

I have had such a busy time lately, but today I have had some time just to sit and enjoy a bit of quilting fun.

Here are some photos of my play time.

I love that I don't have to mark the design first. I love free motion designs that I can make up as I go along. Here I have played with the combination of feathers and circles.

As I have used feathers in the centre of the quilt I like this design to fill the triangles that are a variation on the feather design. These have also been done without the dreaded marking.

For the life of me I am not sure why these photo's are not centering like they should do, but please forgive that they are not doing as they should.

Hope you enjoyed my quick post. I love to share with you and enjoy your comments.

Happy Stitching

Sharon
