You might be able to see the vertical wavy quilting lines that I used. The quilt finished at 17" x 24".
While my machine was set up for free motion quilting, I decided to finish this little HST quilt too - it's been waiting for several months.
I really like the curved line quilting that I did on each side of each triangle. This quilt finished at 16" x 16".
I was looking through the pictures on my digital camera, and realized that I hadn't shared these yet. Hubby was off work for three weeks in December because he had accumulated too much vacation time to carry over to the new year - he had to use it or loose it. So we took a little trip before Christmas and went south where we thought it would be a little warmer (HA!) After we explored Hoover Dam I talked him into visiting a darling quilt shop in Boulder City Nevada called Fiddlesticks Quilts. I snapped these pictures which were the results from a small quilt challenge that the store sponsored and I thought you'd enjoy seeing them. Wish I'd jotted down the sizes, but I don't think any of them were more than 20" on a side.
I'm not sure if prizes were awarded, but it sure was fun to see the creativity involved in making them.This one was in a window display and I liked it too.
We also explored a bit of the State Park called Valley of Fire after learning about it from my friend Nedra, who blogs at Cactus Needle Quilts. The summer temperatures can reach 120 degrees, so December was a good time to go. We hiked around in some of the cool rock formations a bit - - - -
