Not much happening over here. I have been steadily working away on my Scrappy House quilt. The ditching took a while, but I eventually finished it.

Now I am up to the sashings. Decided to further practice Natalia Bonner's design that she used in the recent 9 patch stitchalong.

Video Tutorial: How to Quilt Spaghetti Swirls from Quilted Joy

I’m not a big fan of the quilt police. There are so many rules in life, I don’t need to be constrained by rules in my quilting too. In my latest design video tutorial for APQS I’m throwing out the rule book to create a sashing design I’m calling Spaghetti Swirls.
