I started by quilting the 6 mini quilts I had made, will add photos of these in a few days then moved on to the row quilt I did as a BOM with Little Bunny blog last year. This I quilted with the walking foot and as it was in rows was not too bad to manipulate, I used different patterns for each row, maybe I should have done more quilting but quite pleased with how it is, for now it will be on the spare bed along with others waiting to be quilted.
This is my scrap vortex quilt also made last year, I just love scrappy, this I quilted free motion with a sort of squiggle, the stitches are not all the same size but I definitely improved as I went on with it,
My granddaughter Sal is 18 on Sunday and she is off to uni in September, this might brighten up the halls of residence but will be more than happy to bring it home if she turns her nose up at it! I will make a label and take it with me, if Sal decides she would like it I will sew it on
I think I mentioned in a previous blog that I now have my machine in my horn cabinet, I am sure this has helped with the quilting as the machine is flat to the surface making it a bit easier to do.
My next quilting project is a baby quilt for a colleague of Helen`s, not sure how I will quilt this will try and photo it better when quilted.
Once this is done I am on hold as I have used all the wadding, I had a roll of recycled but wold like to get some warm and natural, having priced it on line think I will have to do some saving first! I wonder what anyone else uses and what you recommend, I have a small piece of the warm and bright which is polyester that I will use for a playmat, it feels nice to touch but do not think there is much difference in price, maybe it is good for baby quilts as it will be easy to wash and will dry quicker.
