Then, after carefully lining up the the verticals I pin basted. So, then, what to quilt? I didn't want to do stitch in the ditch, because, as Weeks Ringle says in her Craftsy course, it is a wasted opportunity to add something more to your quilt. And since I'm doing Leah Day's Building Block free motion quilt along, I felt inspired to try to free motion flowers on the stars and curves along the red squares. I did initially SITD the main blocks to hold everything together, but I used wash away thread, so that it came out when washed.
Here is the result.
|Back without flash to try to see quilting|
|Front, can't see quilting on red squares|
|Back, quilting over piecing|
|Front, quilting on squares!|
I also am finally caught up on Amy Gibson's 2014 Sugar Block Club! Yay!
And finally, not quite done with all of Leah's blocks for March.
The white fabric all looks pink in these photos.
|Wonky circles, Grrr|
|This one is still on the machine|
|This one is still pinned.|
And I am so slowly piecing together the blocks of Bonnie Celtic Solstice.
I'll also link up to Cat Patches New FO Challenge, when it goes live on Monday.
Off to quilt!
