Simple living is a day where I post about how to keep things simple. Today I am posting about not overly complicating my long arm quilting. I have discovered a simple truth-less is more. I have applied this to my quilting style and piecing style and found that it really works.
I made this simple star quilt in great bold, modern colors.
I also realized a very large simply shaped freehand feather would be nice. It has a modern feel. It is much larger than feathers I have done in the past and I think I have found a little to secret to making feathers. Keep it big and keep it wonky!
I am also applying this lesson of scaling back and not making it complicated to my work day and diet/exercise program. Let's see if it helps me!
