I always love star blocks and when I saw Jera of Quilting in The Rain "Summer Mini Star" quilt I just went ahead and bought the pattern
one year ago...
and it's super easy to do
I've done it in a day...well if you count the hours that I am working on it ;-)
here is the detail of the FMQ, isn't that pretty??
Please don't mind if I can't stop being narcissistic here
I've been trying FMQ in my HV Designer Topaz 20 which is I must admit it was rather bumpy journey. I read and watched a bunch of tutorials, fiddle with the settings, etc but it was not working as smooth as my humble Usha Stitch Queen.
and this one I did with Rayon thread in butter yellow color. It's so gorgeous in person.
HV DT 20 in my opinion is good as embroidery machine or general sewing. But not for quilting. This is from my personal experiences.
At the back, I decided to go with this yellow and green geometric print from my Etsy Fabric Shop. I wanted something bright.
And the binding is dark grey polkadots.
For now, it's hanging prettily above my sewing machine.
It's my inspiration as I can finish my first quilt of the year.
To tell you the truth, I was almost giving up on FMQ, until the other day. I was trying to tell my self that FMQ is not everyone's cup of tea.
well, if you get the right machine, then why not?? It's easy it's fun.
Sometimes something simple is all you need!
