Design Wall Monday
Here are two little quiltlets that I pieced last fall. Over the past couple of days, I have quilted them on my DSM and sewed the bindings on - two projects finished, and two off my list of UFO's! I learned a few things with these, I prefer a cotton batting on these little quilts over a polyester, the wonky stars needs more contrast, and I learned how to do a ladder stitch to sew down the binding. Both of these quiltlets came about from the generosity of others. Marcie at Patchalot More offered the Christmas Tree pattern a couple of years ago, and I used The Happy Zombie's Jingle Jolly pattern as a starting point for the wonky star quiltlet.
