I needed to finish a few minis I'd pieced together a couple weeks ago, so I did that last night.
one came about when I found a scrap of the chicken print fabric in the
goodie box. It was cut on the curve, sort of a triangular shaped piece
generally in the shape it appears here. Curved piecing? Why not.
Everything I'd done up to that point had been straight lines. I would
like to make a drunkard's path quilt one of these days, so might as well
get some practice.
I just started adding more bits and it morphed into a scene. Spooky
eyes lurking in the barnyard or star craziness in the sky...something's
got their feathers ruffled!
I can't decide whether to call it Clucky Streak or Clucky Strike??
Next up were the Dia de los Muertos
Since the Juki was still threaded and ready from doing the
fruit and veggie quilt last week, I did a little free-motion quilting on
Just an overall meander on the larger one, and some outlining and tiny loops on the other.
The back of the larger one...
And the back of the small...
I probably should have done the outlining in the center before I put the backing on, but whatever. Live and learn.
I think I wore out this track on the Foster the People CD while working on these (I love the keyboard part at about 1:00 in). "Focus on your ability...focus on your ability..." goes the refrain. Sounds like a plan!
