Pretty and great quilting.
Beautiful and love quilting.
Wow - look at all the lovely quilting!
~Sigh~ I just love all your quilts 'n stuff :) This one is so charming in how simple/classic the churn dash is-yet, modern, because of its size...and so densely quilted...just darling!
Love the FMQ on this...Great job! I envy your ability to do such beautiful sewing.
The quilting on this is so stunning. And I love using one big block for a small quilt. So simple and pretty.
Your quilting is amazing! I wish I had enough vision to see different parts of a quilt could use different designs... I think the pink binding would look great with this.
Fabulous quilting! Can I ask, do you start and stop at the ends of every straight line, or sew along the edge and keep going up the next line? I'd love to see a photo of the back!
I am in awe of this quilting! And the over sized Churndash is so darling for a baby quilt. Just love that Camille!
Wow, thanks everyone! Y'all are all so sweet!
Terrysim I actually dropped my needle, pivoted 90 degrees and stitched in the ditch for 3 stitches to equal the width of my foot, then dropped the needle again, pivoted another 90 degrees and went back up. Does that make sense? So it's all one continuous snaking line for each section.
Terrysim I'll take more photos when I get the binding on. The party is on Saturday, so it better be before then! Haha. For now, you can see a section of the back in the photos above. It's the yellow cheater print. If you look closely you can see what I described in my comment above in that photo.
Here's a newbie question for you -- burying threads? Can you explain that, please?
Lovely quilt. I love the thoughtful choice of themed fabric, and I'm always down for huge one-block quilts. Very pretty! Looking forward to seeing if it "pops" like you are hoping.
Juline Thanks! Burying threads - I leave long tails at the beginning and end. Then when I'm done, I pull the bobbin thread up to the top of the quilt, tie the top thread and bobbin thread in a knot close to the top, thread a needle onto that set of tails, and pull the knot into the fabric, but not all the way through, just into the batting. Pull the needle back out the top an inch or so away and snip the threads off.
Hm. The one quilting class I took made no mention of that. I just run the needle up and down a few times when I start/stop, and that's it. Should I expect my quilting to start unraveling any time now?
Juline I read it in a quilt book I have. I don't like to take chances on gift quilts, but don't always do it on my own quilts.
Thanks for the link. ALL my quilts are gift quilts! I have yet to keep one.
Kristananne - That makes a lot of sense, thanks for the explanation. And it looks great on the cheater fabric, too. I didn't even notice it the first time I looked at it but now I see the 3 turning stitches you took between each row. What a good idea!
I love the quilting on this!
The white binding is the perfect finishing touch. Congrats!!
