...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 day" and 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!
