I finished quilting the Wonky House block!
It may be a little hard to see the quilting, I did dense meandering around the house parts
if there was "grass" or something else big underneath the house I quilted bubbles/pebbles.
Now look at the wonky BACKING!!
here's a close up of the backing- now I don't want to do a backing that's THIS scrappy, I had a lot of tension issues, but I think I managed to figure it all out.
also, I guess my backing was not straight, see the teal at the bottom, on one side you don't see it, on the other side it show maybe 1/4"- just bad placement I guess too :-(
Now it IS a wonky quilt!! so...
I made another fabric ball the other day too, using 18 squares and 8 triangles (all 1")
the collection is growing!
And THESE came in the mail from connecting threads! "mirage garden sampler"
I can't wait to cut into this :-)
and another little ball I finished yesterday, my son picked out the fabrics.
this one uses 12 pentagons and 20 triangles (1 1/2")
