And the quilt goes on…
The first two blocks of the second line down are quilted. I’ve had some other things on the go (a rather larger hand quilting job, you’ll recall!), so I didn’t manage the same number of blocks this time as I did last time, but I’m still doing OK. Here are the completed blocks 6 and 7.
The only tricky part is ensuring that the quilting on the body of the hatbox is roughly the same on all the blocks. The two blocks shown here have very different patterns, so I’ve had to be selective about which bits I pick out with quilting.
The easiest way to see if you’re getting it right is to look at the back; without the distraction of the block design, you can tell if the quilting is evenly distributed and not too dense.
Bee, Myself and I is a forum for ‘selfish sewing’; any stitchery which is purely for pleasure and not for anyone else. The original concept belongs to Carla of Granny Maud’s Girl. To find out more, you can click through on either her blog link, or using the button a fair way down in the left hand column.
Hopefully next time I’ll have a few more to show.
