Finished the quilt today. I wasn’t sure how to quilt it – initially I was planning on echoing the curves at 1/2″ intervals but the shape of the curves in each block is quite different and I thought the finished stitching wouldn’t resonate from one block to the next. So in the end I set up an open embroidery design (240 mm x 240 mm) which had to be embroidered using my 360/350 hoop which stitches half of the design, then gets turned 180 degrees and the second half of the design is stitched. By changing the top thread colour (I used a “blendable” thread) to blend with the predominant block fabric I was able to have the stitching present but not too dominant.
Happy with the finished quilt. Definitely got a lot of practice sewing curves – which is what I was going for.
Still enough fabric left from that set of batiks to make one, and maybe two, more quilts.
Hi Judith, Another fantastic quilt. Have you thought of writing a book on “creative quilts”? You certainly have the flair for these. Inspiring, to me, as I will try my first quilt soon!! Pat
