Stitching in the ditch around all the applique is going to slow me down. I'll use white YLI hand quilting thread for that. I want to outline the applique, not necessary for colored thread to show.
This week was busy with non quilty things. All the hand quilting I accomplished was this little 12" section.
Now you can see I'm stitching on each side of the diagonal seam line but NOT in the ditch of the seam line. I like it!
There are 50 or 60 leaves that will be appliqued once the flowers are finished. This end has the finished flowers.
I'm enjoying the applique process since I haven't appliqued in quite awhile.
The background fabric looks white but it isn't. The fabric is a cream with a subtle beige flower design.
Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another. If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.
