I used the sample blocks from the 6-minute circle demo I mentioned yesterday to make placemat's for one of my guild's community service projects. You might recognize them as two of last year's lotto blocks: Sunrise and Bead-on-a-String.
I had fun playing with quilting designs over the weekend and finishing them up–the bindings are sewn down by machine, so no Slow Sunday Stitching for me today.
I wanted to try Karen's Feather Galaxy fill pattern ... but I never quite found my rhythm.
The dark gray thread showed up a lot more than I expected on the gray-on-black background, too.
I will likely try it on another project and probably change it up enough to make it work better for me. You can see what it's supposed to look like in this YouTube video.
Even if it isn't "right," I really do love the combination of spiral, feather shapes and pebbles.
