Semi Circles Or Windmills.

Posted on | September 11, 2017 | 9 Comments

Time to catch up on some quilting. This one has been sandwiched for a while and I finally gave it time on the machine last week. It is actually the last one waiting in line that was sandwiched. There are still stacks of flimsies waiting to be sandwiched and hopefully I can make a dent in that pile this week.


It is made as groups of four to look like flower petals but I keep seeing windmills.


I straight line quilted the sashing to secure the blocks then free motion quilted the space above each semi circle with loops.


Lots of circles and loops in the border and then spotty binding.

I had quite a few fat quarters from a matching range so I put together a backing piece using those.


I do like seeing how well the quilting shows up on the back of some quilts.


I am not quite sure where this one will go – maybe on the back of a couch until I decide.

Spring is trying to peek through here and the apricot tree is in blossom. I just hope a few blossoms stay on in the strong winds we are having.

And it is lovely to see the bulbs started to show up as well. They are so pretty.

With all the crazy and destructive weather going on around the world I will accept the cold and wind here gratefully.

Cheers, Karen
