In the last couple of weeks we've quilted 3 quilts.
Lynn. I have quilted a sort of curly-loopy pattern in each block. I did it oversized, so it extended into the sashing and the borders, which I will do on my DSM, will just be straight lines. I did try to take photos of the offending stitches, but they weren't good enough to show you what I mean.
The third quilt we've worked on is my version of Heartfire, also by Lynn. This is the quilt that I made after my wonderful holiday with Lynn and Mr Joe in California. The fabrics were a FQ bundle that I bought while I was there and I have amended the pattern to include some "flowers". The yellow ones represent the California poppy, and the red ones to represent the red rose of England. I also made small hexie blocks to go in the corners of the borders, then I quilted it with a lovely all-over design. I am going to call it Californian Dreams I think cos of all the wonderful memories I have every time I look at it.
this post. Well yesterday, when we were together for a playday, we had all the blocks finished, we shuffled them around on the design wall until we were happy with the layout, then took them all off, carefully labelling them as we went, and here they are, all ready to be sewn into their rows and then a top, next time we get together.
