So, as you've probably worked out, I finished my wonky stars quilt (you can see my initial plan for this quilt here and the quilt top before quilting here).
I free motion quilted pebbles and swirls in the blue and green background, so I am calling it Splashy Stars. Just a little bit of straight line quilting in the white wonky stars helps define them and keep the quilt slightly flatter.
Seriously, isn't this wall great? It's the side of a cafe, and I have to say, I think the wave and swirling sea is a vast improvement over concrete blocks.
So, this quilt is finished. I originally made it for my sister's friend's baby boy, who was born (a week or so earlier than expected) last Wednesday. I'm just not sure what to do with it now though - the FMQ looks good on the front, but the back is a hot mess. I used a cotton poplin print with the perfect colours (you can catch a glimpse in the second photo above), but it did not agree with free motion quilting. I'm going to think on how to deal with this issue for a little while - any suggestions (other than ripping out the quilting!) are welcome.
So, I have to know, where is the most embarrassing or strangest place you have taken quilt photos?!
