Back to qulting

Here’s a HeartStrings top pieced by Sue from donated blocks – she’s used a border print to make these blocks go further but you’ll have to wait until I’ve got it bound to see the whole top. I’ve had it waiting for quilting since last year when I took the top to Nebraska for a class and talk on string quilts and HeartStrings and I’m glad to finally have it quilted. Normally I don’t like to have any donated top waiting for quilting longer than 6 months but this year quilting has had to take a back seat to my family responsibilities.  Quilted with the pantograph, Improved Clamshells – you can see the quilting better on the back but I love the texture the clamshells create.

    Your Improved Clamshells panto looks so nice Mary. I have a terrible time keeping the curved momentum going smoothly when I try clams. I love the look of yours. And the separation between the lines is perfect. I think my solution may be a template board instead. Looking forward to seeing the whole quilt.
