Lately I have been in a get it done mood. I feel a feverish need to finish some of those projects that have been sitting around for well, a long time. I have one that is three years old. The very sad part is that it was a gift that is now three years late! Yikes! I did however have to slip in a baby shower gift. I found some fun fabric on a recent visit to California that seemed just perfect. I did not piece this quilt as I wanted to focus on some actual quilting techniques. The pattern I used comes from Free Motion Quilting with Angela Walters. This is a great book. I highly recommend it if you are giving free motion quilting a try. She does a great job of walking you through how to make the patterns. I recommend sketching the patterns as suggested its worth the time!
My patterns always turn out a bit more organic than those presented in the book. Bu,t I like them. They are all mine! Don't you just love those vintage looking princesses riding a dragon? This is the stuff of my fairy tale!
