I basted and pinned both my SHG quilt top and my granny squares quilt top this weekend.. no quilting progress to show, though I did get some done.
I need thoughts and opinions.. for the Chasing Chevrons quilt top, how would you quilt it? I was thinking of dying some organic wavy lines, but then I really liked this chevron quilting (btw how amazing is that quilt).
So, thoughts and opinions would be GREATLY appreciated - I'm trying not to take away from the quilt top with the quilting - the backing is a solid piece of blue fabric and I'm planning to use gray thread to quilt it..
Okay, onto the actual sewing this weekend. I finished 5 more of my Retro Flowers blocks bringing the grand total to 16!
Excuse the lopsided pictures, it was starting to drizzle and I wanted to get the pictures taken during the brief pause in rain!
I put all the blocks together in Picasa to see what the layout could look like
When we laid it out on the floor I started thinking about how a 5x5 would look..
then I realized the Hope Valley line is 24 fabrics and I happen to have them all..
I'd only need to supplement one fabric to make my 5x5
I'll give you one guess as to what I did next..
