Thank you so much for stopping by. If you're new here, I hope you like what you see and come back :)
A big thank you to Samm for keeping these great blog hops going. And to Carol, our wonderful cheerleader this go around.
I had this beautiful FQ bundle sitting in my stash, just waiting for the right project to come along.
I thought something radiating...maybe stars of some sort. So I started searching around the web for inspiration and came across this adorable starburst mini quilt from Canoe Ridge Creations. And thats when inspiration struck!
I wanted to use this star pattern, but expand it and make it like it was radiating outwards. I thought it would be great if I could use my FQ bundle, and have the colors gradient outward also, along with a few other colors.
So I got out my paper and pencils, then went to my EQ program and I came up with this.
By this time it was the middle of December, and I was busy making Christmas gifts. There was no way I was going to get this pretty quilt made.
So I scaled it down and used the colors that I had in my stash, and came up with this little wall hanging. It's 32"x32".
I knew that my dh would really like it, as he loves the bright lime green and the orange. So I gave it to him for Christmas :)
I had the perfect backing in my stash too.
I used my walking foot to do some straight line quilting on most of the quilt.
But then I put on my darning foot and did a bit of free motion quilting.
My first time doing some stippling.
And yes, I DO plan on making a full sized quilt like the one I drafted sometime this year :) I'll be sure to show it to you when I do.
Thanks again for stopping by! Don't forget to look at all the beautiful blog hop stops. Here are the Ladies who are sharing my day.
