So, she made this gorgeous table runner and quilted it using the swirl pattern that we think might work on Stargazing.
Isn't that going to look great? You can't see how amazing it is through this photo - her FMQ skills make me speechless. I like the soft, airy swirls next to the sharp star points. I think that will be lovely.
And then she made up four mini little samplers using four different types of thread so I can see the differences in their thickness or how they transition from the white background onto colored, printed fabric.
I did find one that I like a whole lot. Hopefully it behaves its self and lets Trudi quilt without an argument. I am so super excited to see what Trudi creates! She's bringing it with her to the Fat Quarterly retreat, so I'll be sure to leave space in the suitcase to bring it home! Can. Not. Wait.
