|Natural Charm quilt|
Fabrics: one charm pack (Love Letters Batiks by Moda) and a light neutral batik yardage from my stash.
Pattern: 9 patch with borders.
Quilting: Stippling and leaves by me on my domestic.
Size: 50 1/2" x 50 1/2"
|Machine stitched binding|
The binding was pieced with a charm pack (Love Letters Batiks by Moda) cut in half and sewn end to end. The binding was sewn to the back first using the double fold binding technique and then wrapped over to the front. About a thousand pins were used to hold it in place and I picked a swirly design from the stitches on my machine to sew the binding down on the front. That binding isn't going anywhere...lol
|Picture taking fun|
Edyta Sitar has Laundry Basket Quilts, Carla has Disc Golf Basket Quilts. My hubby loves the sport of disc golf, so he is making his own baskets in his Duck Creek Design workshop and is building a course on our land. Picture taking, for me, is taking on a life of it's own...
It's amazing what a couple of days can do for healing. I was crushed with the troubles I had with my machine and threads on this quilt, but I'm ready to "get back in the saddle again." I really love this quilt and am so happy to be donating it to such a great cause.
I am on a quest to find my perfect thread. What thread do you use for Free Motion Quilting? Suggestions please. I can't quilt another one until I find a thread that works for me.
Thanking everyone for help,
