The Wonky Star has been quilted and turned into a table topper. I thought about making it into a pillow but decided it would drive me crazy to see just how wonky my star was. A table topper or center piece with a fabric basket or flowers will hide a little bit of it. During the month of May the Island Batik ambassadors were asked to create and share paper pieced projects made with Island Batik fabrics. Follow me on Pinterest and you can see some of the other projects made by the ambassadors.
I used the Red Tide collection that I made my April Showers quilt tutorial from.
Our neighbors have a Rat Rod old truck and were going to a car show this weekend so I was able to get a few pictures with my quilt and the rat rod. My SIL Julie and neighbor Rhonda were happy to model for me. Rhonda’s yorkies Lea and Rose also were in the picture.I did a simple stipple quilting on my vintage Singer 15-91 on the cream part and then just a little wiggle stitch through the squares.Here is another photo of the wonky star and the rat rod old truck. Honestly….I don’t know why it is called a rat rod truck…..guess I’ll have to find out. I remember seeing my neighbor’s truck last year and I kept wondering when they were going to get it painted. This IS the way it is supposed to look.I decided to grab one of my Scattered quilts and see what it would look like on the rat rod truck. Pretty neat! Next time it would be fun to have the truck parked on the other side of the road so the river was in the background. Thanks Rhonda and Jeff for the great quilt prop!
I also got a beautiful picture of my Scattered quilt, can you see the barge in the background? You can read more about this quilt and see it in other colors.I always like to make a few images that are good to pin on Pinterest, hope you like it! Follow me on Pinterest and you find all kinds of neat things!
