I quilted a mariner's star in the white squares. Suggested by Annette and Lynne showed me a pick of a mariner's star block that I used out of Block Base.
Beautiful, Carla! How did you decide to quilt the open squares?
Congratulations Carla. It is beautiful.
Carla - Close enough for a Valentine's finish! :) It is lovely.
Finished my Ocean Waves Quilt today! Whoo Hoo! It's approximately 75x75 and took about six weeks to quilt.
I agree, Carla! I'm quilting a vintage grandmother's flower garden and am loving the variation in the flowers. I recently bought a smaller piece of one from the 40s (?) that will be about baby quilt size when finished. I'm having to move a few flowers to even it out and sewed a few more from vintage fabrics. Very fun. I'm on a real vintage roll these days. Have to stop checking out the flea markets and antique stores!
Well, I found piecing a red and white a bit boring but quilting it is fun. I guess it made me realize that I really do love scrappy quilts when it comes to pieces. Seeing how the fabrics play off one another in each block really brings me joy!
I did that on an Irish Chain because I though simple was good. It wasn't. It was boring. LOL now in retrospect that's probably why it took next year's to complete!
I've just sandwiched a quilt that I made just to use up some if my repros and am debating whether or not to handquilt it. I need to think about this for a bit longer. I don't want to commit myself to handquilting yet. At least not until I finish another top. One chore at a time. When the temperature drops to -20C, I always want to handquilt.
