Weekly Update - Machine Quilting and a New Project

It has been a busy week! 

It all started with getting all the Fall and Halloween decorations out. I had to get my glue gun out to fix somethings that have been beaten up over the years, and I had to iron out some wrinkles in the table runners. Everything looks great! I love decorating my new house with each new season, and I love pulling out all the little quilts I have made through the years!

Fall Decorations

This week I also decided I needed to finish the red version of the Irish Woodland Quilt. I decided I wanted to apply some of the fun things I learned at Charlotte Anderson's class I took a few weeks ago.  I was also really excited to use variegated thread on this!

I actually didn't end up using any of her methods, but I did take one or two things and make them my own. 

For the squares, I usually do straight crossing lines. I changed it up this time by making flower petals that cross. This took a little time to get in the groove, but I really liked how fun and easy it turned out to be.

For the hexie flowers, I did loopy flower petals and a little loopy seeds on the center. I really loved this!

For the white, I took the theme that was happening and ran with it. I made big loopy flowers there too.

I love how different I turned it out from the purple version. I really loved how it turned out!

After the quilt had the binding and the label put on, I felt like I could move on to another project. So I started on this adorable little kit I got from my local quilt shop.  It is the Little Red Number Eleven. I really love their packaging and how all their quilts are little, red, have small pieces, and a little flower embroidery on them! 

New Project from Little Red

I have made one of their quilt before, but I lost it somewhere which makes me sad. So I had to replace it! I am looking forward to this little quilt!

Have fun quilting!
