|Rows 2 and 3 are on the wall. (Row 1 is hiding behind Row 2 now)|
I'm still slowly working on more blocks. Although there are only 12 large blocks in this quilt, each large block is composed of lots of smaller ones. It's fun to switch techniques from piecing, fusing with a satin stitch, and couching embroidery. Plus, I'm getting to play with lots and lots of batik fabrics!
So the last row is in progress. Here's how it looks this morning.
|Row 3 blocks are done. Row 4 in their present state.|
For quilting, I've been trying to decide on a variegated thread or a clear one. I picked up some Mono Poly clear thread last week while I was out of town. It's not the smoky color, but the lighter one. I might also stretch out some variegated threads across the blocks and see if they'll be too distracting from the overall design. Any ideas?
Enjoy your day!
