More Bits

As I was trying to squeeze in some various scraps into a drawer, all of these vivid primary pieces just seemed like they could be made into a quick quilt and be gone.
With an impending class on curves coming up, I thought I would take this opportunity to make a class sample and nail down some cut sizes.






In a few short hours I had a quilt top cut, pieced and ready for quilting.

And most importantly....all those bits of fabric were gone!


To accentuate the curved piecing and the bright primary colors, I simply free motion quilted some soft curvy lines the length of the quilt in a bright red thread.
So bright, so easy, so done!

That was a clever way to kill two birds with one stone! It looks great :)

What fun! I love the way the quilting compliments the piecing.

Yes Janine, I am quite pleased. Maybe I should clean out my fabric more often. ;-)

Thanks Gwyned. This quilting goes quite quickly too. It was a great project all around.

Looks wonderful and I think you definitely have the curves down pat! Thanks for sharing.

Those curves are so much more interesting than just lines, a great idea.

This is so cute. Great idea! I have to give curves a try.

Thanks! They can be even more fun when you change the thread colors as you go.
