The Wonderful Half Square Triangle Quilt
71 x 90 inches
I love this Wonderful Half Square Triangle quilt with its Flea Market Fancy and Girlfriends toile fabrics set off by the natural Essex Linen blend (putty).
darning foot (for freemotion quilting) instead of the walking foot (for straight line quilting) is a bit of a wonky, homegrown look to the lines of quilting instead of perfectly straight lines.
Using a bias bar as my ruler
The quilting lines all filled in
In the coloured areas I simply quilted in the ditches.
Lime. Kaffe's shot cottons are like quilting through butter and it has made the quilt feel so soft and cuddly. You can really see the quilting pattern from the back of the quilt...
Don't Look Now has done an incredible job of running this huge quiltalong, however I have never been happy with my petals...my evil perfectionist side taking over again. I have been mulling over these blocks for a long time trying to find a way to finish them in a way I will be satisfied. Hopefully I will be able to come up with something good in the next few months. Have you had any UFO finishes this week? xo
