What I have been up to!

Along with the FMQ Challenge I have been participating in, I have managed to get some other things finished.

The latest item was my Blueberry Crumb Cake.  I purchased this as a kit at my local quilt shop back right after Christmas.  Had to spend my Christmas gift.  I loved the fabric in this quilt.  <KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>

I used a nice scroll and feather edge to edge design in the quilting.

I also completed this Trapunto wall quilt.  I wasn’t really happy with this one.  I won’t go into what is wrong with it but will let you know that this is a photo of the back and not the front.  If you wonder why it looks kind of wonky, part of the reason is the way the clothesline hangs and part of the reason is that it has been wadded up waiting for a photo to be taken.  Yes, wadded!  Not happy at all with this one.  Especially after all the time it took to complete.

This is a closeup of the outside edge of this one.

This is the center.  I don’t know if you can tell much about the trapunto.

Well, that is it for now.  I am going to be really busy the next few weeks.  I am changing jobs on Monday.  I will be going from a part time position to a full time position.  I think this will probably cut into my quilting time but will supplement my fabric stash!

Hope you had a great holiday!!

Oh wow, that looks great. I made a quilt out of blueberry crumb cake too. I love the quilting you've done on yours. =)

I hope you enjoy your new job and adjust quickly.
