One Thing, One Week Challenge: Gettin' my quiltin' on!
For this week's One Thing, One Week Challenge at Amy's Creative Side, my focus was to quilt my Whimsy project.
Success!!! I went a little out of my box on this one by trying out straight-line quilting with my walking foot. I did end up doing a tiny bit of free-motion around the embroidery (just outlining the stitched circles), but everything else was with the walking foot. I'm glad I gave it a go as it is a fun look, but I learned that it is really not my favorite style to quilt. Free-motion is more challenging for me, but it is also more fun.
Next up: binding!
If you get a chance, take some time to browse through the other challenge participants' successes-- there is always lots of awesome creative energy and inspiration to be found!
