I Quilt~Like A Chicken!

I'm a chicken. I'm afraid of free motion on my home machine so I quilt 1/4" off the seam. On this quilt it looks pretty good:

I'm also enjoying quilt-as-you-go projects. This will be a set of 6 placemats, from a pattern inspired by Cori George of Let's Eat Grandpa

That's about it for this week!


  1. The straight line quilting looks fantastic on that quilt! And your placemat is really cute, I have yet to try Quilt as you go. So you're not a chicken, you just do what works for you!

  2. I love your version of this quilt, Diana, especially how you've stopped the flipped strip short of the ends.

  3. Nothing wrong with straight line stitching. I really like the colors of your placemat!

  4. I'm a big fan of straight line quilting! Really suits the strip quilt!
