Just Lucky

I must be very lucky because I have managed to get chicken pox for a second time. This doesn't happen to just anyone. I got chicken pox 13 years ago and thought I was so lucky to only get a mild dose. Turns out this is not such a good thing as you don't build a good immunity and get it again! Once again it is a mild dose. I hope this doesn't mean I can get it again!!!!! I don't feel too bad. Mainly tired and grumpy and I am taking it easy.

I have been trying to free motion quilting with limited success. I find it easier to follow shapes so have been doing applique to practice my free motion skills. I quite like this little Frangipani.
I have way too many quilts waiting to be quilted so decided to try something different with this one. My friend is doing a mini version with Amy Butler fabrics and hand quilting squares so I thought I will do squares with a walking foot because I can do that. My husband suggested putting the squares on a 45 degree angle which I think looks good.
The back shows the quilting better. I am showing it now as I have to order fabric for the binding. I thought I would use black but it is too stark. The pattern is Charm Squares Baby Quilt from Oh Fransson.

  1. Oooh! Chickenpox for a second time. Glad that it is just a mild case. Hope you don't have a third. Love the quilting! You are doing very well. The squares on the diagonal for your Charm Squares Baby Quilt are perfect for that quilt, very modern. How about a brown for the binding or the blue?

    Have a super great day and wishing you a speedy recovery.
