The quilting pattern that I used is one called "Plumify It" that I learned in a Craftsy class by Patsy Thompson and I'll show more of that later when I'm done. I am struggling with making the pattern too small and am making a concentrated effort to enlarge the motif as I go. I'm sure between where I start and where I end, the size is going to be quite different.
Just curious, can any of you fellow quilters tell me what your average number of bobbin changes is for a lap size quilt with medium dense quilting? Is that something people track? And also, does anybody know about how many yards of thread one Bernina bobbin takes? I think medium dense is about where my quilting is ending up although I am going to continue to work hard to enlarge it.
I seriously consider each and every one of you who give me advice and suggestions as part of my mentoring group so THANK YOU so much.
OK, next subject . . .
I belong to a bee group consisting of quilters who belonged to the 2016 New Quilt Bloggers. This month, Kate Heads of Smiles From Kate is our Queen Bee and she wanted a Christmas Tree and Gnome block that is supposed be to very wonky. I have never made anything wonky before and this was WAAAAY outside my comfort zone so thanks for stretching me, Kate! I had such a hard time not cutting things symmetrically, and a couple of my blocks ended up not so wonky. Here is my attempt at Kate's block.
Kate you stretched me but not enough to want to make a quilt full of these!
