Top #7 of 10 quilted

I decided my Wonky Rails needed a wonky grid so I quilted the first pass and ran upstairs to even my sides up to reload the quilt…and promptly started trimming like I was getting ready to bind.
Since I needed an edge to attach to the leaders, I decided to try using safety pins – and it worked. I also shorted myself on the side there – couldn’t clamp it so I had to hold it with my hand as I started each pass.

This is why I wasn’t paying attention. I have a wallhanging to quilt for my younger sister that needs a background fill. Deb does this one so well that I asked her to draw out how she quilts it and used the leftover backing from the above quilt to see if I could quilt it. I have a few little issues with spacing but I think with a matching thread and a little more practice, I can probably manage to quilt this.
I did manage to reload and finish quilting the Wonky Rails – here’s a front view of my uneven grid…
and a back view. Only 3 more tops to meet my goal of 10 quilted before the end of August.

  1. mary, you can use the fill that deb uses. you did a great job. it’s always just remembering what i’m doing, at least for me. once you don’t have you nose in it, and look at it from a distance, any imperfections will disappear.hugs, patti in


  2. Love the wonky grid! And it is perfect for that quilt.The fill is looking good…the spacing will come as you do it. I think that for a first try it looks fabulous!


  3. Take a look at Darcie’s quilting, it looks a bit like this, but a bit easier to understand I think. Her link is on my sidebar, Quilting by Darcie. scroll her blog, and you’ll see what I mean. I tried it myself, and it was so fun!!! i really love visiting your blog. You do such lovely work, I love it:-)
