This Wednesday I was able to work some more on my Christmas Exchange Quilt. I opted to use my walking foot to quilt straight lines close to the ditch. Note: not stitch-in-the-ditch because I'm terrible at it.
I used brown thread which isn't really floating my boat, but it was a matter of availability. After quilting all the straight lines I was feeling ho-hum. Then I started free motion quilting the border using a random stippling pattern in a teal fabric. This part of the quilting I loooooooooove.
(My cats were NOT being helpful).
I also picked up this variegated red thread to quilt Seuss:
I plan to use white thread on the back, and the red on the front in a random herringbone pattern like this one from Film in the Fridge:

What...you mean you didn't need a fabric weight? :0)ReplyDelete
A little bit at a time still counts and eventually gets the job done. The red thread for the quilting is lovely.ReplyDelete
