Progress!

Between being out of town for a week, and then a visit with my mom, there hasn't been a lot of time to spend in the sewing room recently.  But I do have some progress to share on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2016 Scrap Jar Stars quilt.

Finishing this quilt is my May One Monthly Goal, and I think I'm well on the way to accomplishing this goal!

After doing some reading in Walk-Master Machine Quilting with Your Walking Foot, by Jacquie Gering, I came up with a plan for the quilting.


I wanted something off-centered, and giving the impression of a starburst, and decided I wanted it to extend outward from my favorite star, which is the red one.  Hopefully, you can see it happening here!


Quilting is proceeding; for me, it's usually at a snail's pace!  Lol!


But, I like how it is turning out!


At this point, there is only a little bit of quilting left to do.  Binding has been made, and hopefully, I will be ready to sew it down in the next couple of days.


Look at that - a matching pincushion!  :)

To see what other Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilters have been working on, be sure to visit ScrapHappy Saturday at SoScrappy!

  2. thinking I will have to look into the book as I struggle so much with not only the quilting but what to quilt too. Yours is looking good and like the idea of extending out of the block. Will take my Women of the Bible to quilt group today to see if anyone has quilting ideas

  6. Love the quilting design you opted for. It goes have the effect of a starburst. I machine quilt at a snail pace too. Let's be realistic; we do need to learn how to walk before we can run. So walk on, Diann. You are doing great! ;^)
