Dwirling Attempt!

I have to warn you...I don't like this quilt!  I know it looks really nice in that picture, but when you're looking at it in person it's not so great!  I was surprised when I saw the picture, because it looks like the one I copied (except that one was square).  My husband and I decided that the brown needs to be a print and not a solid.  That might help it not look so plain.

The other thing I don't care for is the quilting.  It is my first try at dwirling.  Maybe I need to keep practicing! I love the method, just not my pattern!  It was fun to free motion somthing besides meander.  Although meander probably would have looked better for a man's quilt!

Close up shows the quilting.  I used a circle template on the foot of my longarm to keep the distance between the lines closer to 1 inch.

Blocked Fall Quilt

Another lovely quilt for the ministry made from 12 sets of 9 patches cut into quarters.  We used a black mirage fabric, which is much softer looking than solid black, to sash the quilt.  It's on the back too with some leftover fabric.

Pieced Flannel Top

This quilt was the 2nd one donated to the quilt ministry by Kathy!  She made the top from scraps of flannel and it is so soft!  We need to use more flannel in our quilts for the winter.  Love this.
