I have been very busy the last few days but I have done a bit of hand quilting.
I got back to work on the suspension bridge quilt and finished up one of the 12 blocks.
I think you can see the pin basting in the picture. One thing that surprises people is how few pins I use.
I don’t find it necessary to pin more than this. I just smooth out the area I am working on once it is in the hoop. and I take out the pins in the hooped area. If I work from the center out to the edges I wont get any puckers.
I like to take pictures of the quilting from the back because it shows up better.
It is a big quilt with a lot of quilting so this will take a while!
