Turquoise scraps

Although many of my monthly scrap-related goals have gone by the wayside, I did manage to put together a turquoise QAYG block for eventual assembly, and for the monthly Free-Motion challenge. The motif this month was a little tricky. I did a little better once I stopped thinking of it as "jester hats" and more as E3E3E3. This is very similar to the clouds that I quilted on my pink placemat a few months back. I will use this again, continuing to try to get the pointy points a little more pointy. My collection of these is starting to look quiltastic!

  1. E3E3 - that may be the trick for some of the rest of us who were challenged by this tricky little design! Nice job on your quiltastic challenge quilt!

    1. Let me know if it helped! Isn't it interesting how just a little mental shift can make a difference?

  2. Great job. There is definitely something unique about the left/right curves and points that make this design more challenging than others, but it is so beautiful. And, it will look great on our quilts.

  4. Looks good...both the quilting and the block. I had to laugh when you said you had to STOP thinking of them as jester hats. It didn't work for me until I MADE myself think of them that way. Funny the way we think. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought it was so tricky.

    1. I've been wondering if there's a right/left brain thing going on with this one...who knows? :)
