Designing Monday

I finished this cute little quilt for the monthly challenge on the Sentimental Quilter's Yahoo group.  It was a fun one to make and I had most of the little squares already leftover from other projects.  I found a stencil for the quilting that is called Twisted Ribbon.  It worked great on the straight sides, but I had a bit of a quandary when I got to the corners.  I just had to draw some creative lines that eventually met up with the other side.  Every corner is different.  Not sure how that happened.

I'm getting prepped for a class in May through the guild.  The teacher is Laurie Ceesay who lives north of here in the UP.  She makes art quilts and is teaching a portrait class using her pattern.  We are supposed to make the background ahead of time so we can focus on the appliqué in class.  It should go pretty quick.  Laurie appeared on Quilting Arts TV this season.  I missed the episode and I don't know if they can be accessed via the internet or not.  This type of quilting will be a stretch for me, but looks like fun.

It is a cold dreary day in Northeast Wisconsin.  Hope you are having a better day in your neck of the woods.

  1. We're having tremendous thunderstorms with wind and hail here in South Carolina!

  2. Love your little quilt. You did a great job connecting at the corners. I think that is the biggest challenge when using stencils on borders!
