Quilting......

So the Hello World blocks have been quilted....

the fabrics are delicious so I did a gentle all over design .....  it's hard to do large bold designs on the domestic machine but I didn't want to do something too tight .... these loops are about the largest I can successfully manoevre my hands to keep the curves curvey.....


... it's a bit like a swirl with a single feather....


I found this video tutorial by APQS which helped me learn this one HERE
(though my curves are not so curvy! - story of my life!)

... stitch in the ditch around the narrow green border...


and a soft feathery edge around the border.....


It's quite a loose design... the quilt is soft and cuddly  .. will be lovely for a young someone to wrap themselves in....

(An elder sister needs a big bed quilt)

I wanted it to have the quilted feel and crinkle look but not take anything from the fabrics


ON ANOTHER MATTER

word verification has been playing tricks ....


... how on earth are you supposed to get these... I don't think robots or non robots can do them


 Righto, Gotto Go... you know what I need to be doing now.....

  3. I love how the quilting looks on those fabrics, just the right touch to enhance the designs. I know, some are like blurs but I learned if you tilt your head to one side, you can see them better, lol.

  8. Charming little darling is what comes to my mind when I look at your quilt. I did some machine quilting, as you know, and I have a whole lot more appreciation for your work!! I've always found your work so elegant consistent. Now I am simply bowled over! You make it look so easy. Love you for that.

  21. Do you free hand the quilting stitch? Or what/how do you do it? Word verification sucks!
