It’s been ages but I have a quilt finish : Red and Green Quilt:)
I was finishing up the binding early Thursday evening , May 26th on my red and green quilt. When I had completed the quilting on it I was in more of a hurry to get the next quilt ( Here ) prepped and ready to go, so I just took my time in regards to this binding.
I did finish it up that evening and took the quilt out to my design wall :)
I have not been quilting for all of my life or anything…the applique blocks were a big deal to me when I started this. The block on the bottom left was the biggest challenge to me at the time with so many pieces.
If you are new to applique it’s best to do what I have done and that is to start with big blocks and bigger pieces such as I did with this quilt. Go for 18 or 20 or 24 inch blocks to start.
For the hand quilting, first I quilted various motifs in to the quilt, and then added the cross hatching.
I have had a lot of projects going on in the last year or two but the time taken to finish the quilting on this ( close to a year ) has me re-thinking all of that. I should probably stop spreading myself so thinly and focus more on what is in the hoop :)
