Curls, Swirls and a Few Straight Lines

Yesterday I spent the afternoon at Spoonflower teaching a class on how to make a wonky star mini quilt. It was fun seeing all the different wonky stars come to life.



To provide some inspiration for the quilting, I put together this sample.

Wonky Star Class Sample

I outlined each star and quilted the insides of each star differently, some with straight lines and others with curls and swirls.

It was fun putting this little one together and sharing it with the class!

  17. My finish-it-up-Friday post was a lament about how hard FMQ is. This! This is what I am aspiring to! I will keep practicing, and one day will get this good. You have done some great work on this little sample.

  18. I see the finished patchwork projects and they look so vibrant. But, once you quilt them it brings them to life even more if that is possible.
