I had been thinking about making a project from the book, Skinny Quilts 2. I decided to try the one designed by Lonni Rossi that has arcs appliqued onto squares of fabric. It was actually quite easy to do this. I used tear-away stabilizer behind the background fabric and used some nice shiny colors of 30wt rayon to do the satin stitch. This morning I added borders and pnned it, and now I have the quilting to do. I think I'll try to do some outline stitching on it. Nancy did a quilt in the shop that she quilted straight lines on, and it looked so nice. I need to try not to meander over everything I do.
So now it's time to stitch!!!
