This Pattern is called ON POINT by Pat Sloan. I started this in a class in January and previously posted some comments and photo’s. This quilt is moving along nicely finally. I haven’t touched it in a month, because I have been working on other projects. I got it layered and pin basted on Tuesday, and started working on the outline stitching.
Started out by outline stitching the big blocks, stitch in the ditch along the borders and a big x in the middle. I used my walking foot to do this, and am glad I ordered a new one. I haven’t had a lot of luck using the ordinary foot for stitch in the ditch due to the thickness of the quilt and my small machine throat.
used the QUILT HALO ring
….. and after a little practice piece, I decided to just go for it. I switched to a varigated purple thread, so it may be hard to see. I have only done FMQ on 1 other quilt, and so I am quite the novice.
The Left side of triangles are done, and I started working across the top. So far, the HALO and the Super Slider Mat are really helping me. Big improvement from my last feeble attempts. I’ve been refreshing my skills by watching videos today; and special thanks to the Gourmet Quilter Blog on wordpress – http://gourmetquilterblog.wordpress.com/ or – http://www.gourmetquilter.com/ — Susan Claire Mayfield .

More fun in a day or sew….
