Branching Out Just A Little

I'm packing up the long arm soon so trying to get a few quilts to the binding stages. I had the backs of two already loaded with quilting plans for one already. I used a little bit of the fabric as a jumping off point once i figured out how to use an old scrapbook stencil to make a pretty good circle. Of course after that I lost my nerve and filled the rest of the diamonds with swirls. Swirls are my go to design.

I did a little bit of quilting in the little green diamonds and then unloaded it from the frame, I'll do the stitch in the ditch and the borders on my little machine one of these days.

This was one of my quilts for the Finish Along but it will have to be bumped to the 2nd quarter.


  1. That one turned out really pretty Shanley! And I LOVE your shelves full of fabric. Now that's what I call a stash! :o)

  2. I agree with Kelli! I want to play in your stash. I promise not to take anything...
