Fuchsia Fantasy 3

I felt like doing some quilting on my little Husqvarna so decided to finish up this little quilt top that I made a few years ago. The flower was inspired by a class with Jane Sassaman, where we had to choose a photo of a flower, do a pencil sketch, erase most of the detail and exaggerate what was left. I really like the fat little fuchsia flower that I ended up with!

When I quilt on my domestic machine, I like to use squares of non-slip drawer liner instead of quilting gloves. I find the gloves make my hands too hot, and I'm forever taking them off and putting them back when I want  to thread needles, grab a mouthful of my cup of tea or whatever. I also put a square of it under my foot pedal to stop it sliding on the tile floor.

Very nice ... and I use drawer liner too.

Lovely work. Makes this slothful one very envious.

I love you 'fat fuchsia" Cat, it is very colourful and the quilting is exquisite.

It looks like one of my 'Aliens' that I did in the same class, but yours is Fat with Red Curly Menace instead of Mean and Spikey like mine, which of course I haven't finished - but I have used the techniques I learned in everything else since.
Love your quilting of course.
