My practice piece

DSCF3903Thought I’d share with you my practice freehand piece, which is two pieces of fleece, no batting.  I’m going to use it as a back car seat blanket for when I have the dogs in the car.

It’s the first time I’ve done this background fill on more than a 12″ block and it’s the first time I’ve used the non-stitch regulated mode on my machine.  I want to say it’s an Irena Blum design, but I really can’t remember where I saw it first.

I’m practicing it because I’m going to put this design on a baby quilt that is just darling, and I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out, or how to manage the size and density (that’s still a bit of a challenge), but I really like it!Hunter-Gizmo-2011-sm

I still need to post photos of the past couple of customer quilts, but have run out of time this weekend.  We got a new-to-us “puppy”, Hunter, a 4 year old Shih Tzu to join the Quilt Guardian team.  So, he is a Quilt-Guardian-in-Training!
