Ever So Busy

I have been working on quilting Grand Illusion. So far I've gotten the Stitch in the Ditching done. It goes slowly. I'm doing ruler work, and handling it much better than before I took the HQ classes.

For a change of pace, I've been piecing this top:

It's called Ribbon Rings by Quilt Moments, and the fabric is Hubba Hubba from Me & My Sister Designs from Moda. I think the figure eights are interesting because it depends on the color value which part is dominant. A good example of color value.

I may play with the lay out:

See the two circles that are all turquoise? When I add in all the figure eights, I can totally do that! I don't think I have even half the eights on this design wall. Not enough room, and I have a lot more to do. Just needed a break from FMQing (Free Motion Quilting). Now I can understand the people who switch back and forth with different projects in one day. I generally like to complete one whole project before I start another.

Very nice. I like the figure 8's and the prints you are using.

For some reason I am having issues posting to you blog :(. I love this quilt top so far the figure eights or infinity rings make such a cool design!
