Project Quilting 4:2  My favorite color.   We were allowed to use one color and had to use white.  I decided to make a drunkard's path quilt for this one. I made a wee mistake in my piecing, thus the strategically place heart. 



The quilting is simple... kind of like Mare's wonky argyle.

Ooh I like it! I've never used a drunkard's path template (or really done any curved piecing, although I used to make clothes, so it should be that hard, right?). It's on my list of things to try!

Mare,  I cheated.  It is raw edge applique.  I really truly was going to do the curved seams and then it was Wednesday night and I was sure I'd never get anything done if I tried that so I just did the quick version.

Stunning. The simple red/white contrast is so effective.

There are no mistakes in quilting, only opportunities to make things better!  Love this.
