Oct In Review
It took forever to finish because I had decided to do all hand embroidery on every seam (what was I thinking???)
The top was backed with an iron on stabilizer to support the stitching. Then, like a traditional crazy, there's no batting - I made bar tacks on the machine every 3 inches or so to connect it to a minkee backing.
you can read more about in this post.
Esther Aliu. I was 3 blocks into it when I realized that I would never finish it. You can see her finished quilt here. I have a master plan to tie together some of the blocks I did with some of the elements of the original quilt that I really like, without having to do multiple repeats of any design. This weekend I added the hearts to the upper right block and over the past 2 days have been adding a curvy vine and flowers which will have more leaves.
Leah Day posts some cool new fill.
I made my younger daughter take a batik class with me and we made this.
So, what did you get done this month?
