There's such satisfaction when a project is completed. At least, that's how I feel with this one that's been hanging around in its 'waiting to be quilted' state for a while it seems.
Then the border was found and helped to bring it back to life a little more after the sashing. Then I deliberated for a while about how to quilt it. I had considered an all over swirl or generous stipple, but thought I'd give the 'orange peel', I think also known as 'dogwood' pattern a try. It was quite easy and looks quite effective I think.
The photos make the border look a little skewed at this point, but it's drying on the line, so it should smooth out a little better once it's dry. Had to take advantage of the weather while I could!
Until next time,
What a gorgeous finish, Lynn! The grey looks great and helps keep all those wonderful colours from overwhelming the quilt. Love the quilting you did! Congratulations!ReplyDelete
Lynn, I love the circular quilting! Please, did you backtrack to move on to the next circle?ReplyDelete

On my orange peel quilting I actually did more of a 'leaf' shape beginning in one corner of the 16 patch and then carefully planned on paper, numbering the lines of where I would go before I quilted to know where to go next, so no backtracking.Delete
I hope hat makes sense. If I could draw it I would show you.
