Cover

Remember this Round Robin quilt that I posted about 2 years ago on April 19, 2014? In my last paragraph I made this statement – “I’m now busy hand quilting the centre piece using DMC Perle 8 thread, using a number 9 quilting needle. It’s a bit of a bugger as the needle eye is a bit small!” Well the hand quilting did happen, for a little bit then it got unhand quilted and machine quilted.
In my last post “More babies …” March 19, 2016 I mentioned that I quilted a “cover” while the baby quilt was being made. Well this is the quilt.
I quilted it on my HQ Sweet Sixteen as all the “stitch in the ditch” was done. I practice my free motion quilting using stencils in the following borders, twirl on first strip, and leaf on the checker board and heart on the green fabric. Then I got brave and pulled out the curved rule and quilted feathers on the light purple and in the last strip fabric. This was lots of fun!
Hope you all had a great Easter? I did. We went a way for a bit that’s why it’s been a bit quite here at Buzy Day.
Love to all.

  1. Very impressive anyway you look at it. Why make arthritic hands when you have a perfectly good machine to do the hard work for you. Every bit as creative if you ask me. It’s a stunning quilt.
