My challenge quilt is coming together nicely. It is taking a while but I am very happy.
Large clam shells in a variegated blue thread. This is looking good.
I drew 1" grids and free motioned overlapping circles.
I am working on the centre filling area... I think it's called mactavishing.
I have quilted the birds in and now deciding what to do in the top right corner and as a filler in the centre.
I have cut all the left over borders together to make the binding. It was tricky.
I sewed the strips along the centre stipe on to the front of the quilt. I could see the little stripe and I was very careful to stitch straight. I then ironed the strip in half and over to the back ready for hand stitching down.
See the different quilting designs. Apple Core and mini Clam Shell.
All the binding needs stitching down. It is getting there..
Can you see the fine coloured stripe in the binding fabric. That was a job keeping it straight.
