this has been a good couple weeks for Mitchell in the blanket department. This one is just a few pieces he found in the fat quarter bin that he wanted me to do something with. The best part is that the bats and spiders on the front are glow in the dark, so he has it in his bunk every night for a little extra ambience. I somehow feel much more brave about trying new things when the piece is small. SO this time i tried a pinwheel and some free motion quilting. Not my favorite thing to do. I much prefer straight lines.
I thought that i would try out pebble quilting. I am sure, as with all other kinds of quilting techniques, there is a learning curve. Will i try it again? I am not so sure about that, but it was fun to do...despite the broken needle. I was just glad that it was a small piece, thus saving me thread. You ladies out there are not kidding about this kind of quilting eating up your thread like it is goingout of style. I used 2 for sure on this and it is only about 18x18. If you want to see some really awesome pebble quilting check out the video in this link.
