My Work-in-Progress (WIP) Wednesday Friday project this week is two-fold: A quilt for a special friend and my freeform crochet scarf for my Drawing winner.
I cannot show you the full quilt, because I do not have permission, but I can show you just a fraction of this quilt:
I designed the pieced border area quilting channeling something I saw before- which is the concept of interlocking circles filled with original freehand fill. I used thread that will blend rather than pop because I wanted to give this quilt interesting texture, yet not overpower the focal point of the overall piece.
The gold border is just one of the many freehand variations I do for smaller borders which play off motifs used elsewhere in the quilt. In case you were curious- and new to this site, I quilt with a longarm quilting machine.
Other WIP: I mentioned late last week that I have started a custom freeform scarf for Karen, my Grand Prize Drawing winner. I hope to finish it as soon as I get the above quilt completed and delivered. Then I will focus on getting my Drawing winners their surprise packages! In the interest of surprise, I will hold off and show you photos after the recipient gets their package. My Drawing winners, thank you for your patience!
Enjoy your weekend, anyone care to share what plans they have?? Regards, Carla
