Further to my post on 25 July 2014, about the Round Robin blocks we organised at Always Quilting, I had lots of fun quilting my “Modern Quilt”.
I need to tick it off the list of things to do – as I know that the year is racing along and it has to be completed as soon as I can. The pile of other projects to be completed is increasing rather than decreasing, and I find if I can get a small project quilted I feel a sense of accomplishment.
After looking at this little quilt for ages, I decided to machine quilt wavy lines, and then circles in certain areas to mimic the pattern already there.
The machining was done with the wonderful Ne 40 – in matching colours to the fabrics 1148,1135,4250(a variegated) and 2525.
I found Aurifil has a gorgeous variegated gold (3920) in the colours I wanted. The more subtle change of the Ne 12 which I used for all the hand quilting was just perfect.
Now all I have to do is put a binding on the quilt – that is the next decision to be made – will I do a traditional binding ??or one that is less obvious?? I call it ‘bagging the quilt out I don’t know the ‘correct’ term – but it means the binding is not obvious on the front – more like a facing used in dressmaking. So – still a little bit more work before I can display it properly!
