I can't believe it, but i have just finished my Flower Garden Quilt top. Not a quilt yet.... that will be another episode.
Before beginning this quilt i had never done any needleturn applique. With Pip, i did a bit of research and decided on the Back-basted method. It seemed to be the most efficient, economical and forgiving of the methods i looked at. The Kaffe Fasset fabrics were a dream to use as they turned under with ease.
The angst of quilting it will be the next challenge.
Do i need to ditch stitch all the sashing?
Will i quilt an outline around all of the applique?
Do i attempt McTavishing or just a meander in the blocks.
I am not a very experienced Free motion quilter and would love to send it out to be custom quilted, but a) i don't know a custom quilter and b) i think the cost would be prohibitive. any suggestions would be welcome.
I have pinned it to the curtains in my family room and think i will just enjoy it there for a while.
I would like to thank Kim for her fabulous pattern, Pip, for encouraging me to "give it a go" and the readers and followers of this blog, for all the supportive comments on this journey. (sorry if that sounds like an Oscars speech)
Now do you think i should allow myself to get the "Pandemonium " pattern?
