A Hometown by Sweetwater Quilt

This sweet quilt belongs to my friend Bev.  She asked me to quilt it so the blocks popped.  Here is a before picture.


And now for the after!



I stitched in the ditch for the block and then used my current favourite filler for the sashing. The border fabric had these adorable circles, so I quilted around them to make them pop as well.


Bev put a plain muslin fabric on the back, so the quilting really shows.  Thanks!

Now for last weeks winner of the four fat quarters of batik fabric.  My random number generator has picked Kelli as the winner.  I do follow her blog over here.  Check out her donkey named Reubenita.  Just too cute!


This is this weeks hexagon.  How quickly this year of hexagons is passing by.

The lady i bought the machine from uses pantagraphs and she has the computer attachment (i didnt get that) so she doesnt do FMQ the same. Anyways combing your old blogs. Hope that is ok! Feel free to email any advise. What was the biggest learning thing when first started?
