September In Review
Nadine at Quilted Bliss. I was in a handwork phase and pieced all of these by hand.
But I finished it in my "multiple quilting techniques" stage so it really is a quilting sampler. I need to bind and wash it then will write up a post on the techniques that I used and the relative merits of each.
Ethne at Flaming Stitches had a while ago. This was a lot of fun and used multiple techniques which gives wonderful texture when viewed up close. The cat is hand-quilted, the branches and background FMQ on the machine, and the leaves are 3-D with each quilted individually using a walking foot, then stitched into place on the quilt. I made this quilt for me! :)
Leah Day to applique some flowers that would show off Leah's amazing Free Motion Quilting.
In October, I hope to get some UFO's crossed off the list. My plan is to make progress on 4 quilt tops that need quilting and 3 piecing projects.
