Quilting-ideas to complete a quilt

#UFOvember -Re Homing!

Falling in love all over again with your quilting projects...what inspired you in the beginning?

-was it about colour?

-was it about shape?

-was it about the delicious fabric?

-was it for a special occasion that has long passed?

Whatever the reason, it is worthwhile to fall in love again and have the satisfaction of finishing the project. This post is a work in progress and is about "re-homing" . It is those small steps that all of sudden lead to the big step of a finished quilt. We just need to make sure the small steps keep happening. This quilt started in a "home" where I was interested in investigating Modern blocks. No thought whatsoever of making a quilt.

Then I joined a quilting day with my own Toronto Modern Quilt Guild and I had to bring a project to work on. I didn't want to go buy more fabric and have the work of looking for a project, so I brought my modern blacks and some coordinating fabric. So ...on to a new home. The blocks were being molded into a quilt.

This was a great home! Mimosas included!

Now I was really committed...The blocks became an Ariel View of where I live sometime at Young and Eglinton and sometimes in Peterborough. I have an almost finished quilt top. I did go home and complete the quilt top. And that is the home it stayed in for about a year. Now I needed to quilt it. For a long time I debated between straight lines or using it as a sampler for a variety of free motion quilting.

I have a quilt top and it is ready for quilting...Still undecided...

Maybe another home will have the quilt tell me what to do..I took some photos outside.Yep...lines would just be too boring...so I started a variety of simple lines designs . I wanted to practice some calm free motion quilting. This will also be some good video to add to my online course I offer. Free Motion Quilting Virtual Course and other Freebies

So ...."re-Homing" worked for me to move my project along...maybe it will work for you too!

Still not finished but I think it is in its final home... I practiced with my line designer first...to find out more about the Line Designer... Take the free download and get my email list for the next course opening.
