Bloggers' Quilt Festival - Windowpane Quilt

I finished my Windowpane quilt just under the wire to make the Bloggers' Quilt Festival going on over at Amy's Creative Side!

The weather here is nasty but I did get some pictures thanks to two local news people who were shooting on location at the park downtown. (The story? "The crappy weather" according to the news anchor. Slow news day!)

When I first posted about this quilt, Melinda at Tilda's Twisted Life left me a comment suggesting I layout the small squares I made for the back similar to the Greenfield Hill quilt at Film in the Fridge. So that's what I did (thanks Melinda!!)!



This was my first foray into free motion quilting! I did a simple back and forth swirl (for lack of a better word) in each of the 9-square blocks. On the binding, I used a decorative stitch on my machine:
I'll be mailing this quilt to my little sister, Elizabeth.

  14. This is just absolutely beautiful! I'm visiting from Sunni's link party. Were you happy with your first foray into free motion? I just did my first on a very small project, it was...OK. Wouldn't have the guts to do it on such a beautiful quilt, though!
