My main Quiltathon activity so far today has been watching the USA win the Ryder Cup but I have been working on hand quilting my Wonky Trees. All my words are stem stitched (click photo for a larger view).
I’ve quilted a tree in this tone on tone block and although I’ve quilted through the other trees I think this one will get lost if I quilt the fly stitches on the inside so I’m leaving it as is for now. I still have most of the top row to fill in with fly stitches but it’s coming along.
This top by Deb in AZ is the next one to be loaded – it will be going back to her to donate and she said she’d be happy with Baptist Fans BUT I’m not going to quilt across this dark sashing with light thread so I’m going to do some line dancing in these blocks.
I’ve been practicing on paper but first I wasted time looking for my copy of the book. I couldn’t find it anywhere but luckily, there are examples online so I was still able to pick a design.
