Finish it up Friday! Black-eyed Susan






 A Friday Finish!! This is my little wall hanging made from the free pattern over at SewKindofWonderful HERE using the Quick Curve Ruler. I wanted to make a scrappy (from my stash and scraps) wall-hanging using the ruler.  This was super fun AND......drum roll please! I tried two new techniques for me on this.

First, because I spiral quilted it, it was pretty wavy. I was able to figure out how to block this since it was so small. super easy and now it is very flat even though in the photo it looks wavy on the bottom. That is because I launched it out in front of me in the snow..haha!
Second, I tried the fake piping binding. Super easy!!


This is scraps of AG Indian Summer fabric. It has such a soft hand. I love the fun way the pieces are just shades in this scrappy piece.
I am calling this one :
"Black-eyed Susan"
24" x 24"
spiral quilting
fake piped binding
scraps/stash fabrics
 
 
Here you can see a bit better the binding. I used THIS Faux Binding Tute and I will do it again I am sure!
 
 
Here is the center. I used a fun decorative stitch on the circles because I had the capability and it was there ...so why not! I think it turned out pretty cool.

A very clever piece! I like how it is a bit different but uses a variety of techniques! Well done :-)
I do like this quilt. Very unique. And the spiral quilting really compliments the overall design. I really would like to try working with a Quick Curve ruler. You did a nice job.
