I have decided to add some big stitch quilt stitches to the 'mostly machine quilted' baby quilt that I'm making for my soon-to-arrive-grand baby (whose late by the way!).
There is a lot of negative space on this quilt that I want to fill with chevron quilting to match the piecework. Using the pieced zig-zags as a guide, I marked dots where the points should be and am using my herra marker and a straight edge to create the line for quilting.
The same technique was used to mark the machine quilting lines as well. (I'm finding that turning the quilt every few inches on my Bernina to make the chevron design is not a lot of fun! Fortunately, this is not a large project!) I wonder which will come first, the quilt or the baby?I've also worked hard to set all of my postage stamp blocks together and am happy to have the top ready to quilt! Here's a photo I snapped right before loading it onto my quilting frame. I wonder if I will have time to get it finished in time to count it on my first quarter of finishes? The deadline is Sunday at midnight!
With the demise of Google Reader coming in July, like many, I am switching over to Bloglovin. Be sure to click the Bloglovin button above or on the side of my blog so that you don't miss a post or lose track of me. That would make me so sad!.
Enjoy your weekend!
