I finally finished the Bear Paw in the Honey Jar Quilt top! I am so excited! Yeah!
Now comes the hard part. How do I quilt it? Should I use templates on each block and some FMQ on the border? Should I do FMQ all over the whole quilt? Should I try incorporating some flowers and bee's in the FMQ? I think that's how the shop had the quilting done on their sample. It feels so permanent, whatever it is I decide.
I have some time to think about it. My daughter is in for her second ear surgery, so I have some time to do some research and practice some patterns on the sketch pads. Unfortunately, it means I can't work on my teacups, which I am super excited about as well, but that's okay. They'll be waiting for me when I get home.
I also pinned another quilt in preparation for quilting; the Oriental Triangles, which I blogged about before. I think I want to practice my free-motion feathers with this one, and will use a tip I saw on Fons and Porter of using clear vinyl on our fabric and drawing the quilting with a dry-erase marker. We'll see how it goes.
Until then, I hope everyone is having a great week. I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday. Looking forward to seeing what everyone is working on.
