Quilting

Plans actually came together and I had a rather lazy afternoon quilting in front of tv yesterday. I finally started on Floral Beauty. The quilting will be quite simple, just double rows around each circle, and maybe a little at the block corners.

I have appliquéd the layers of each block without cutting out the fabric behind so it is too thick to quilt through. I'm not sure if this is how I should have done it, but it's what I've got to work with now.

Whilst I sewed I watched The Big Wedding and The Internship. Both were very funny.

I really need to spend some time on secret Christmas projects today. Hope you have a relaxing day and find a moment for some stitching.

  5. Such beautiful quilting. If you wanted to quilt inside the blocks, could you just go through the top couple of layers and now right through to the backing? Not being a prolific hand quilter, I'm unsure about these things but was just wondering.

  6. Your quilt will be fabulous... and I think leaving the actual block un-quilted will make it stand up puffy and beautiful! GoRGeouS colour choice! :)

  7. the quilting will compliment the blocks beautifully! Not sure about cutting behind either...
    It shouldn't matter I think?
    Happy quilting

  19. Whoh! It's looking amazing Susan - I think there will be a fair bit of movie-watching going on while you work on this...
    The bathroom is very lovely - we put a clear screen in the kids bathroom when we did theirs - while it looks great for the space, it's a beast to keep clear of all their splatter of body wash & shampoo blobs... Good luck with yours ! x
