Manipulating old records

This is what my daughter does in her spare time!!

I’m steadily ploughing through my stack of basted quilts all needing quilted.

Pixelated Heart Quilt 002
Approx. 68″ x 68″

I will be teaching this quilt pattern in September.  It is satisfyingly easy, and you can have great fun experimenting with the values of the background and heart sections, as well as how to quilt it.

I went for condensed wavy lines.  I really like the finished look of this quilting, but be warned – you need to have your quilt really well basted & flat (otherwise you will get fabric drag) and you need to have lots of patience and muscle (quilting in 20+ degree heat not recommended)!  Ask me how I know these things!!!

I backed the quilt using another vintage sheet, leftovers from the same one I used to upcycle the drawers in my sewing room.

So that’s another tick off my list!

Now which one shall I do next?
