|I had to un-baste my star quilt to have enough pins. I'm planning to spray baste the star quilt anyway.|
And it has been patiently waiting more than 4 days for me to figure out how to quilt it and what color of thread to use.
|Definitely going with the pattern in the bottom-right for the aqua blocks. Undecided on the blue blocks.|
My husband and I have been doodling on some print-outs I made using Quilt Design Wizard software. I created the SquarePants block using the HST block from the software....tedious, but it worked. I find the program to be sooo limiting, but still very helpful, and definitely worth the $23! Better than trying to do the same thing in Excel.
|A lot of these are designs from my husband.|
Which designs do you like? I still need to figure out what to quilt in the blue blocks...but I can start quilting on the aqua blocks while I wait for inspiraton. I originally thought of using a medium blue thread for the quilting, but then my husband suggest a medium grey, and I knew it would be perfect.
Today I had the urge to do some quilting, so I quilted the prototype airplane. The quilting came out pretty wiggly, but I had a babe hanging on my apron strings, so to speak.
|I pieced together the batting scraps from the quilt. I think it will make a cute little pillow.|
And now I wait for my order of grey Aurifil thread to arrive and keep talking myself out of starting another quilt!
