On the Frame

This poor quilt continues to progress slowly, but surely.  I like it much better now and it's beginning to look more exciting as the quilting is taking shape.
First 2 rows are quilted
The photo above shows the first 2 rows, so I can refer back to them once they're rolled up.  Each block is quilted differently, just for fun.  With photos, I can try to keep the similar designs spaced nicely.  It's easy to forget the placement once the quilt is advanced.

3rd row

Of course, sometimes, the same pattern happens in adjacent blocks in the same row.  I have no excuse.  Sigh.  Didn't notice till I was finished with the 2nd one.  I am NOT ripping the stitches out.  

3rd row on the right

Time to advance to row 4 and hopefully make a little more progress today.  I like the minkee backing fabric.  Hope it isn't stretching too much on the frame.  Guess we'll find out soon.

Enjoy your day!

  1. You are such a talented quilter! I love how you are highlighting each block with different quilting, thanks for showing the closeup pics.

  2. The quilting is really showing up well on the minkee backing. I'd love to see the whole quilt from the back (and front) once you've finished. So far, it looks beautiful!

  3. That's a great idea to take the photos to refer back to. I can see how easily it would be to forget what you've quilted in which block. Excellent work - can't wait to see your finish.
