SLIME {Minecraft Quilt}


And for those who have NO idea what I am talking about?
 This is a "guy" from the computer game called Minecraft, that is quite the craze!

First ever attempt at free motion square quilting!

It was REALLY fun!  I had no plan whatsoever and just moved myself along.
It reminded me of my Etch-a-Sketch doodling days!!

I was super excited about the design in the mouth.
However, even though I used black thread quilting on eyes and mouth? I used green in the bobbin.  I wasn't extremely happy with the tension...Another thing to work on!

I had other plans for the binding, but was vetoed by the boys. 
I was hoping for charcoal memoirs or a green print...but they chanted Kona Sour Apple.
Mom loses again.

But I did win with the minkee backing.  I really wanted the dot!

And the quilting still showed up VERY well on the back! 
 I might mock up a quick free pattern if anyone is interested.
   I figure give my new pattern design a try with something easy first?

  1. I love the bright green Heidi! I'm sorry they overruled you on the binding! I'm about to try quilting with a minky backing (on my home machine) for the first time and I'm really scared of bunching and pleats. Any suggestions? I know you longarm, but have you found anything super important I should know before trying it?
