Orphan Block Central
Aurifil 12 wt).
Aurifil monofilament in a zigzag pattern, from edge to edge, to keep those little scallops from bending. It works like a charm. I used a zigzag stitch to applique' the corner hearts, and tiny tiny meandering to quilt it all and and make the [unquilted] borders pop.
It looks like I have another Christmas gift ready ahead of time. I am really enjoying working with orphan blocks (or orphan borders!) to turn them into quilted beauties. What have you made lately with those blocks and borders pieces I know you have in your stash? Send me a picture.
I will link this post to Crazy Mom Quilts and Confessions of a Fabric Addict on Friday. I hope your day is filled with happy colors!
