The civil war block of the week - I really like it!
I have just finished 2 weeks of practicing free motion quilting with other quilters. See the blog here. My goal was to be able to quilt feathers on the border of my basket quilt. The quilt is for a full size bed and I'm quilting it on my domestic sewing machine (DSM). I layered it in two sections so it would be easier to quilt with my DSM. I laid the quilt out on a king size bed so you could see the two sections of the quilt. The section on the left is all quilted and the border of the section on the right is quilted.
In the next picture I folded the batting under so you can see how the quilt will look.
I'm not sure if you can see the quilting on the left side and the border. It's not perfect, but I am making progress and hope to get better with more experience. I'm not entering the quilt in a show or anything like that. The rest of the quilting and putting both halfs together will have to wait a while since we're going to our GD's high school graduation soon.
Thanks for visiting!
