Swirls, and Pearls and Wonky Stars

My headline today sounds like one of those late 60s early 70s pop/folk hits, (think Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell) but this fun quilt is on the longarm right now.  I received a ‘Wonky Star’ quilt to quilt for Quilts of Valor.  It was one of those quilts where I had either too many ideas or not enough ideas, sometimes at the same time!!  The quilt is a fresh modern design with speckled, dotted, and flowered fabrics.  I knew that I wanted to use a quilt design which is fresh, and modern.  I think Anita Shackelford’s design ‘Modern Snails’ is just perfect.  The design adds interest without overwhelming the quilt top design and it quilts out beautifully.  I hope the recipient of the quilt likes it!!

I had a good weekend–I had plans to drop my son off at Solo and Ensemble contest, go to Embroidery Club, pick up my son at Solo and Ensemble along with my niece, and go to a quilt retreat  all before 5–I thought I would expire from all of the fun.  The dog was quite concerned because I packed up my sewing machine along with my supplies, I’m sure she thought we were moving again.

Snow made me stay home from the retreat, Solo and Ensemble went well, and I was able to go to Embroidery Club.  I can’t wait to share what I made there.  Linking up with Pile of Fabric and My Quilt Infatuation.

 Have a quilty day!
