Shirley’s quilt is done. I don’t have a lot of choice here but the fabric I used for the background and binding on Ruby’s quilt works for the binding on this one too.
Just simple quilting with the walking foot. I don’t do stitch in the ditch quilting at all … I use the edge of my walking foot and stitch along the seams. It’s much easier than staying in the ditch and doesn’t require any marking.
I really like how this one turned out and can see using the idea for a baby quilt.
Very nice dolly quilt. I hate stitching in the ditch, your idea is much better. What brand and model sewing machine do you use?
As I was looking at your straight line stitching with the walking foot, it made me think again about the need for us to be patient with ourselves and with others as we find the new normal, and cautiously begin to open our countries, towns, and villages. And we still get to play with our fabric.
Very cute quilt for Shirley! I have used your way of quilting and like it much better than in the ditch. I also do the crosshatch but that is it for my quilting skills. I need to learn more techniques for smaller projects. Your machine has a beautiful straight stitch!!
Love your quilting, Mary. So much easier than SID.
Take care, Kathy
