Last night I finished my little Storm at Sea miniature -- quilted, bound and labeled. :) It was a fun little project to do, and John Flynn's laser-cut kits are definitely very precise and easy to piece. This one ended up being 21" wide by 23.5" long after I'd added the borders; the center is 14" x 17.5". I quilted a combination of small feathers and some stylized "waves" into diagonal rows, then added some curlier waves in the outer border (click on the photo for a closer look). I really should have done more stabilizing quilting before beginning the free-motion work, as the areas between the quilting rows have a rather "topographical" effect. As I frequently do, I added some corded piping between the outer border and the binding; I like the extra bit of interest it adds.
I'm a retired high school French teacher from Arizona, now living in the Las Vegas area. I loved teaching French, but I love retirement even more! I'm a quilter, and most of what you see here will be about quilting.
