More red stitches

I did some more work on the red perle cotton quilting on Saturday..also a bit on Sunday but spent most of Sunday in the garden.

I think you can see the overall design starting to emerge now.


There will be a border design quilted in after the center is filled.

Here are some more pictures (click pictures to enlarged)

When I put a new area in the hoop I take out the safety pins and draw in a design.ย  I am using a BICย  .5 mm #2 disposableย  mechanical pencil (from the office supply store…super inexpensive)

It washes out easily if you don’t press too hard

I still have the Whole cloth quilt hanging and I couldn’t help taking a few more pictures

And just in case you think I am super efficient look at one of the piles of projects waiting for me to hand quilt.


Happy Quilting

    Iโ€™m obsesses with your quilting! Can you do a demo on those tiny little fill in stitches in between the feather designs?

    Great work!
