…I must be quilting :o) It seems that I am once again apologising for not posting more frequently, but given the choice to sit and sew or sit at the computer, I’ve been choosing the sewing... and as a result I’m getting lots done. Do you remember the scrappy bargello that I completed in March? Well, it is almost done. I just need to attach the label and finish the binding.
I had auditioned several threads for the quilting but opted for one that was variegated and had many of the colours found in the quilt.
I had seen a quilt with tear drop like quilting early this year (sorry can’t remember where or who) and thought it would be a great design for this quilt. It is simple enough, but just a bit different from meandering.
It was good practice too as I had to curve tears drops down and around for 1/2 the quilt and then when I worked from the centre out for the second half they needed to be reversed so they would all be going in the same direction. I’m thrilled with how well this turned out and I think it was completed just in the nick of time as the weather has gone colder… I think we are going to need extra quilts this year to keep warm.
Until next time...♥
