Quilt Along #17: Circuit Board


Leah is back to the weekly challenges and tutorials!  This week she guided us to do a variation on stippling.  This time with right corners - very nice looking design.

It really helps me when she breaks the design down into steps and shows each one.  So this one started with a row of U shapes, then L and Y, backwards and forward, upside down, F shape and H shape - then finally all combined.

I wanted to post my entry to the site - since I had cleaned the sewing room up though I couldn't find my sandwiches so did my sample on a piece of polar fleece that I found.  It was different but doable to sew on stretchy material.  I stopped when I realized that I didn't really have plan for how to join different pieces of polar fleece together.  In one of my online groups a lady made a pram quilt - just 28 x 32 inches - I have enough polar fleece scraps to do that - but am not sure how to hide the threads properly. For this sample, I tied a knot then put the clover needle inbetween the fabric - it shows in several pieces as the fabric is not really thick...

I'm a little out of order for Leah's site, but I haven't really done any quilting or sewing the past few weeks over the holiday so this is the only thing I can share now.  I intend to do a bigger sample and to do the Challenge #16 as I did not post that on the site at all.

But as I was working on this I really could realize how much I have learned in these challenges.  The first time I spent so much time breaking thread or/and needles and was so hesitant.  I have much more confidence now.

I've linked up to Leah's site: I'm #14!

I am doing this as part of Leah Day's Quilt Along Wednesdays on the Free Motion Project. The directions to this (and much more) are there for you to learn. To help support the project I have purchased some of my supplies from the Day Styles Design Quilt Shop. For many items the prices end up being lower or the same as buying in a local or online store that is not providing free training and help with free motion quilting. Go Leah!
