The first quilt has a very peaceful palette, and I thought some free motion waves with aqua thread would complement it nicely. It's the first time I've ever quilted waves, and I'm pleased with them. Next time though, I plan to try to have some of the waves come closer together in places. I think this will make the movement more organic.
I backed the second quilt with French General fabrics and quilted with flowers in muted gold thread. French General fabrics aren't exactly considered modern, but being a south Louisiana girl, the warmth of these French influenced fabrics are near and dear to my heart. They just remind me of home. This is the second time I've quilted flowers, but I made these a little smaller than the first attempt. I found that making them smaller actually made it much easier to cover the quilt evenly without blank spots.
Let's get to last week's party highlights, shall we? I'm embracing a final bit of Christmas kitsch in this quilt from Homespun Hannah-
Kate at Life in Pieces linked up her progress on this pretty quilt.
and I know I shared the blocks last week, but I couldn't help but share this finished top from Tanya Quilts in CO. Y'all know I love a curvy illusion!
Alrighty friends! Let's link up and party!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop" when selecting your thumbnail photo. For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work! :)
