Karen (For the Love of Needle and Thread) recently suggested that I might like to join Kathleen Tracy's (A Sentimental Quilter) Small Quilt Group on Yahoo. Well, she was right - it is a lovely, informative group.
This year Kathleen is having a "quilt of the month" - using patterns from her books, but this month's pattern is a free one on her website.
This is the April quilt of the month.
I decided to make mine a bit smaller, and made 3" blocks. The quilt is 9" x 13".
I tried this Kimono Silk, a 100Wt thread for the free motion quilting, using a #70 titanium top stitching - it sewed beautifully. The quilting in the squares was with the walking foot and Aurifil #50 thread, because I wanted the stitching to be visible.
I quilted some feathered hearts in the 3" plain squares.
The quilt was washed and because I used cotton batting, it is all nice and crinkled now.
I made the quilt smaller than the pattern because I wanted a little quilt to display on my featherweight machine.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!❤
