|So far: the cow-spotted border getting the big stitch treatment|
McCall's Quilting, Jan/Feb 2012 issue) had an article on big stitch quilting. The article was informative. And inspiring.
Plus, being at retreat, I had a whole crew of people to give more advice on how to hide my knots and what types of thread to use (not just perle cotton! I'm using floss for more color variety. And thinking of mixing colors for even more effects.)
I look forward to showing off more of the big stitches (as I get to them).
Quilt-along, month 3This month, I was working on the wishing well. Got the machine sewing portion completed at retreat, but stalled on the hand finish and the quilting embellishment. (Oh, how I wish I were more confident at free-motion quilting!)
Next month's assignment: apple tree (already have the fabrics picked out)
Due date: March 16 (same day as buck-a-block)
Wish me luck! I feel like I'm getting too many projects creeping into my WIP pile...
