Quilting Progress


I finally got all the stitching out of this one and I'm now ready to pin it and re-do it on the regular machine. I'll stitch in the ditch so it will be very simple. I hope I didn't stretch it too much during the ripping out. All I need to do is get rid of all the thread bits and I'm ready to move on with it.


Yesterday I put my autumn quilt on the big frame. I did a meander (I was aiming for a stipple but I think it's a bit to loose to qualify) around the letters with a matching blue thread. The thread matched so well that it was hard to see what I had done so the meander is far from perfect. I got stalled because I didn't have a light blue thread to do the sky, but I bought some in the afternoon yesterday so I'm ready to go this morning. I may try to follow the cloud pattern in the fabric. I got a light brown thread to work on the bark of the lighter tree and I dug out dark brown thread for the dark tree that is not shown in this photo. This one will be fun to quilt because it's all free motion. It will be a challenge when I get to the tree and hills.

UN-stitching is such a tedious job to do hey? I had to do some myself this week!
I like what I can see so far on your Autumn Quilt! Must look back in your blog a bit. I am sure you probably posted a photo of it as just a quilt top...
Happy stitchings!

I'm so happy you are still working along on that geometric quilt - I just love it! As a matter of fact, I was thinking about it today!

Cheers!

Someone has to make a 'ripped thread gismo'. It is the worst part of ripping!

I don't know the story of why you are ripping out, but just had to comment on how wonderful the quilt is.
