I did some fancy laser guided patterns in the quilting.
I think maybe I should have used a more neutral thread in the batik patches, there were a lot of light fabrics and the dark thread is kinda distracting. You can see the pattern better on the back.
I like the way the pattern came out in the squares but I'm not so sure it was worth the effort in the border. It takes quite a bit of time to set these kind of patterns up on the long arm machine. The other top I quilted is from a long ago set of blocks from a swap.
These were orphan blocks from a swap from about 12 years ago. They did not seem to me "to go together" very well but with a little fiddling and some pretty border fabrics I think it turned out well enough for a donation quilt?! And another UFO bites the dust! Funny thing is now I'm really in a finish 'um up mood. So instead of starting something new I put another top on the frame! Go team!
cheers, Claire W.
