I also started the hand quilting that I wanted to add... loving it! As it is a secret project I can't reveal too much - but this should give you a hint.
|My rustic hand quilting is neither straight nor even... but I love the definition it gives. I have been using an Aurifil 12wt cotton thread which suits this chunky quilting style.|
My good friend who attended Quilt Symposium in January treated me to a quilty tea towel souvenir.
Little quilty quips... although being white it won't last long in my kitchen, but looks quite at home hanging on my design wall at present.
And while we're on the subject of funny little phrases... this is the sign I recently bought for our littlest room. Although I might need to add "and put the old roll into the bin" to make it a perfect world.
With the colder weather creeping up, it was finally time to sneak a second quilt on the bed. I just knew that it was finally time for Bluebirds and Berries to get its time in the sun.
I think you can tell that the border size was chosen to cover this size bed! It is a perfect fit.
And you can also see the dimension from the quilting... although the outer applique border is quilted with a tone on tone thread, it really shows up wonderfully in this light.
