It's the last Friday of the month and the day for showing the Sugar Block of the month that Linda, Wynneth and I are taking part in this year - one block a month designed and instructed by Amy Gibson - it's still not too late if you wish to join the group.
I actually finished my block for May on the 12th which I am rather smug about and sometimes it has literally been a lastminute.com affair which I don't like!
I made it larger by adding strips to each side in the same fabric and then quilted it. I used straight lines across the triangles, a swirling circle in the middle and then stippling elsewhere.
Here is my free motion quilting, circle on the middle, straights on the triangles and wiggles on the ribbon.
I then made it into a cushion with French seams and over lapping back which I prefer to having to put a zip in. It is sitting on the bed embellishing my quilt.
And here it is. It is my intention to make last months block into another cushion as well when I get around to it. I am enjoying getting some practice in of FMQ. K x
