quilted and bound!
Thank you again Lori of Humble Quilts for such a fun quiltalong.
Looking forward to the linky party so I can see everyone's versions.
Go check out her latest post...her quilts were part of a recent exhibit and look absolutely stunning all displayed together. And she looks pretty cute herself!
I learned a lot hand quilting this little treasure.
First, basting is an important step if you don't want puckers and creases on both the front and back of your little quilt. I could definitely benefit from a class or perhaps I should read one of those tutorials I have pinned on hand quilting! And although wool batt is like butter, it is puffy and hard to work with without a hoop.
About half way through the process, I discovered that if I steamed my little project, the wool batt acted almost like an adhesive, giving me a well basted, flat sandwich. And finally, definitely don't place a seam in your backing right under a line of quilting...LOL!With all that said and done, I am happy with how it turned out.
Imperfect, but charming.
And the last line of quilting showed marked improvement!
