I recently discovered that I do not like piecing triangles. I really really don't like piecing triangles!
Luckily, while at my parent's in May, my mom showed me an amazing piecing technique published by Jodi Barrows - Square in a Square!
I worked my way through "Constellation," one of the beginner projects in the first book. It is a small wall-hanging type project, so it's fitting that it was finished just in time for July 4th.
I also tried my hand at free-motion quilting without using the embroidery unit.
I think it turned out great considering it is my first time! And I'm hooked, to both Square in a Square and free-motion quilting. I will be on the look out for both books (especially this one since it shows how to convert existing patterns) and the ruler.
