All this moving!
As a stress buster break from house moving, I am moving along with quilting my Summer Nights quilt. After finishing the borders with a star pattern (that I have to admit as a beginner I struggled with) I decided to quilt the rest of the top in a meandering free style swirly “C” design. It is based on the tutorial by Laura A. Coia who hosts the youtube channel SewVeryEasy. This style of FMQ is oh so such much easier on my brain!
I boxed myself in, in a few spots hence the tangle of swirls in spots but overall I like it. My suggestion for future quilting is to make the C swirls larger and more spread apart. One of the tricky parts of FMQ for me is thinking ahead while concentrating on the present sewing.
Another bit of happiness to share is this pic of my first “patio garden” cucumbers. I grew the plant from seed and it has been so fun to watch it emerge, grow, then flower, then spy a baby cucumber and then have a tasty cuke and mayo sandwich to eat for lunch today!
Hope all is well and sparkily with you ~Abbie 🌟
