Description

This one is A Little Silhouette by Sarah Fielke from her book Quilting From Little Things.  It's been on my to do list since last year when I saw this one.  I used a solid background, rather than patchwork squares for the background.      

I had planned to machine quilt it as I sewed down the applique using herringbone stitch, then stitch in the ditch next to the border.  Part way through I changed the foot to a clear embroidery foot……It’s amazing how much difference being able to see where I am going makes….and then realised I hadn’t made a quilt sandwich!

 

I like herringbone stitch for attaching applique, but am still working out the right stitch length and speed.  The only possible thing I can think of doing is starting another applique project to see if I can work it out!

 

It turned out to be a good thing, as I gave echo quilting a bash....I like it!  I will be doing more of it, too.  In her book, Sarah Fielke echo quilts hers by hand.  I considered it, then decided to give it a bash on the machine.

 

I’ve named it Night Bird and have decided to keep it as a Halloween project.  The flowers remind me of Triffids.  This is the third dolly quilt I’ve worked on from this book.
