This is a practice block, so it is NOT perfect. I'm not afraid to admit that! 3 out 4 four points (1 more than others) got chopped off. Now that I've practiced the technique more, I'm hoping that the real quilt won't be so drastic. :) Since this is my mini and it's hanging on my sewing room wall, I don't really mind that the points don't exist. Just have fun, right?
I had a lot of fun with the quilting, and I'm considering quilting the petals (or eye) of my actual Meadow quilt like so. I used my free motion quilt for everything. Those curlicues have me all excited for more! I traced the purple curves in the background with purple Aurifil, and I traced the middle daisies. I've been doing a lot of thread tracing lately... fabric is so beautiful.
And on the back...
A hidden unicorn! :) I really wanted to keep some of this Lovely Hunt fabric by Lizzy House (because surely I'll be using it for my nieces). So there we go. I know, the horn is cut off a little, but this one was on the edge of my fabric. It still counts, right?
Here is it is on my mini wall! If you missed the tour, you can catch it here (and on Periscope - I'm @quiltyhabit - until 9:20 pm EST on 10/8!).
This was a selfish sewing project that was more than gratifying! Thanks for reading!
