OMG - June 2020


This month I used OMG as a challenge to get an older flimsy to quilted/finish.  Please be sure to visit the LINK UP to see what everyone has used OMG to inspire.


My goal was to finally quilt this simple quilt made long ago from an older line of Moda - Crazy for Red.  I wanted to, also, challenge myself to quilt a motif not tried on my machine, done a few times by hand on smaller quilts - the Baptist Fan.  Being this quilt pattern has a lot of straight lines, the fan would soften them and add movement.


I had to take a lot of breaks as right brain/left brain heavy quilting movements give me angst and headaches.  I'm so gald I took the challenge and think it added to this quilt.  Washed and line dried for crinkley goodness. 

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. The quilting is amazing. The background fabric works great with the reds. Is this the Ground Cover pattern from Me and My Sister?
