Pastor's Attic will be hand quilted. I've known how I wanted to quilt her even before I started the applique. However, she is going to need to be marked over the entire quilt and that is going to take awhile. My goal is to have her ready to go in the quilting frame by next fall.
If you look closely at the above photo, you will notice that I've left the selvages on the borders. I like to do this so I don't need to zigzag the edge to keep them from raveling. I will cut the selvages off before sewing on the binding.
Here are pictures of the last 2 corners.
I finished appliqueing the first block November 7, 2015. You can read the post I wrote about it on my old Word Press blog.
I made this quilt to prove to myself I could do it. As long as I own her, she'll never be used as a bed quilt, she's just for pretty.
The border of Star Dance will be the next applique project. I've started prepping the applique. Maybe next Sunday I'll something to show you.
Nearly Insane is in the quilting frame but not much quilting has happened. I've marked a simple cable on the outside border. The border is a busy fabric, you won't really see the quilting. I'll outline the zigzag border, the narrow borders will be stitched in the ditch. The blocks will each be quilted differently. A new quilting journey begins and will end sometime in the summer, I hope!
