cottons & tulle
I felt the need to whip up a little something for a friend whose birthday is next Wednesday. My husband gave me Yoshiko Jinzenji's, Quilting Line + Color for Christmas and I'd been eyeing the animal silhouette handbags and pillows. With a few hours, less than a yard of white fabric, some scraps and 2 layers of tulle I had a quilt. I'm calling it Dogpatch, which is actually the name of dog park in the City.
The quilting was fairly time-consuming. I used the edge of the foot on the walking foot as a guide for the spacing of the stitching. There really wasn't any way to mark over the tulle and it didn't bother me if the lines weren't perfectly straight. And because I decided to stitch in 2 different directions, I had a ton of threads to bury.

I enjoyed trying something a little different and minimalistic for a change. I still need to bind it and I'm thinking of adding a touch of color by adding some faux piping -- we'll see if I can figure out how to do it!
