I am participating in another quilting challenge and this one stretches my creativity. Instead of them saying do this step 1, 2 and 3, she tells us a motif to use and we have to take it from there. We are also making pillows from this so there isn't a lot of piecing to do since it is solid pieces of fabric. :)
January's Challenge is to use a heart motif.
Choice which of the three options offered that I want to use as a starting point.
I chose option 3.
I draw out a design in my sketch book. Wish I would have used my tracing paper for layers but didn't.
Then it is just quilting away, only referringn to my drawing as needed to remind me where I'm trying to end up.
Now all finished!
Oh my goodness... I am so proud of this accomplishment. It is not perfect and is not award winning but I am still proud. :)
With that being said, solid side up it is.
No matter what we do in life, if we want to grow we have to spend time on it and with it.
Here are two other sketches that I didn't stitch.
It amazes me that a simple shape can be stitched so many different ways and have such a different appearance in the end.
If you want to join in on the challenge, you can find more information here and see the projects of other quilters.
Now let's GO! quilting!
