This week I have been working on my version of the Amazing Grace Quilt. I purchased this quilt as a kit from Shabby Fabrics. It is based on a panel with coordinating fabrics from Kennsington Studios through Quilted Treasures. I pieced it several years ago, but I am finally ready to quilt it! See a photo of the quilt top on my longarm below.
I love the colors in this quilt! I also love the hymn Amazing Grace, so I am glad that I am finishing it this week. As you may know from previous posts, I have been working on free motion quilting. I continue my adventures here. Below is a photo of quilting on the inner border. I tried alternating side to side circles to fill the turquoise border.
In the corners I used a template and pounce powder to make a simple design. See the photo below.
The third border, shown in the photo below, has circles with some loops in a single line. The third border is a smaller scale with loops and circles in more a meandering pattern. The center panel will be similar only in a larger scale. I can hardly wait to finish it!
Now it is your turn! You can link up your in-progress or completed piecing projects using the blue button with the frog below. Please note that the thumbnail photos and links will not show up on this page. You will need to click the blue frog button below to see the photos and links. This may be a little different from what you are used to. If you prefer, you can also link up on Instagram using #PiecefulSundayatJANDABendQuilts.
Please include a link to this page in the blog post that you are linking up. If you wish, you can include the Pieceful Sunday button as well. After linking up, I hope that you will stop by the posts of others to see their work. Encouraging comments are welcome. Quilters tend to be nurturing and supportive. I am hoping that this Linky Party will help us establish an encouraging quilting group.
