A wee peek

I'm working on something new. Looks pretty boring, eh? Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know that there will be some appliqué in them there blocks.

I have been playing around with different methods for finishing these mini quilts. For this quilt, what you see is just the top and batting. No backing yet. In the rectangular blocks, there is stipple quilting in the background (the brown bias strips were flipped out of the way when the stippling was being done). Why am I doing it this way ….. I don’t know ….. it’s because I just like playing around with different ideas.

I’m working on the appliqué pieces which are being sewn on top of the stipple quilting. Once they are all done, then the backing will be added on and the finishing quilting will take place.

Once again, I am combining machine and hand quilting on the same quilt.

Have a great day!

This sounds very interesting. I can imagine that it is easier to appliqué on a thicker layer. Do let us know.
I absolutely love your Lover´s knot, the scrappiness, the color range. It is going to my to-do list straight away! Take care.
