At last...


...I can move on to quilting the borders.  Whenever I step back and look at what I've quilted so far, I am amazed.  Sure it took a bit longer than expected, but its all down hill from now.  My quilting is not perfect, but it blends into the fabric so well, that it is not even noticeable if my swirls ended up a bit wonky or is not completely even spaced, it still looks good to me.  I love this quilt!


As I removed the quilt from my machine I noticed that I've missed one block's sashing, so after I am done with that I can start quilting the borders.  I am really excited to start, I have decided on feathers, but because there are appliqued hearts I am going to keep them small, moving from one heart to the next, and filling up the space with random swirls and pebbles.  Its still a thought process, so I am sure once I get there, I'll know exactly how it will all fit in.


I recieved a comment today on Instagram from Rene Sharp at  Stamping in Sunny SA and she said:  "I want to quilt like you one dayand for me its probably the best compliment ever!  Thanks so much to everyone supporting me, reading my blog, leaving comments and following along on my progress.  It means the world to me!

This is gorgeous...I love the quilting. Would you be willing to share your machine set up for quilting? There are so many different techniques out there and I notice you have the same machine so I would love to know...feed dogs up or down, pressure, foot type, tension, etc. thanks!

I was away this weekend, so I missed this blog post. Just seen it now!! So nice to see my name mentioned on your lovely blog!!! I mean what I said. It's great to see your setup, and what machine you are using. I have mostly used straight line quilting up til now, only made 2 quilts using the stippling method (and I found it awfully stressful), and haven't yet tried the lovely fancy swirls and flowers etc that you use. Now that I have discovered your blog, I hope to try my hand at these new techniques soon xx
