Small 'Scrappy Houses' throw quilt:
|I tried wavy lines quilting. It's okay but I don't love it.|
And a larger version of my "Scrappy Houses' throw quilt.
|Back to meanding FMQ on this one|
I also quilted my dog quilt yesterday, most of the fabric in it was purchased on sale for $5 per yard or less so it isn't quite as thrifty but it is still somewhat thrifty and it is gorgeous!
I tried thread basting for the first time and it was pain because my darning foot kept getting tangled in the thread, so I'll go back to pin basting!!!
I tried double stitching to attach the binding to my quilt back before folding over to topstitch it down. I've had a few issues with fraying in this area on other quilts and I'm hoping the double stitching will reinforce the fabric and prevent fraying.
I used a turquoise thread on the top and a white thread in my bobbin when quilting. It worked out perfectly.
|I adore this backing! I actually chose all the other fabrics just to go with the backing LOL|
I don't usually work with such vivid colors but I ADORE this finish. Turquoise is my favorite color and I love dogs so this one is allllllll mine.
I quilted and bound all of these yesterday so it was a big day but it's great to make some space in the sewing room again!
