Welcome from Port Orange, Florida USA
(near Daytona Beach :)
I am Kathi B. Clower!I have been working fairly regularly every day on making triple diagonal lines on the Sister Quilt or Hammock Quilt ... as I have come to start calling it. I finally finished the gross or major part of the quilting! I put in the final diagonal line this morning and planned phase 2! I started this exactly 3 weeks ago so that is pretty fast for me :)
The triple line action doesn't show much now ... but when phase 2 in complete I think the design will be well complemented.
I wanted to get jazzy with the thread color but that doesn't work because my backing is white... so I will use my lovely YLI 40 wt hand quilting thread for this part of the project... I debated also using a backstitch instead of a typical quilting running stitch.... but after a trial run I like the quilted look I think... how about you?
A few blocks of the Hammock Quilt done :)
The 13 year old UFO quilt I finished and mailed has been slept under and cuddled under with the grandkids and thoroughly blended into everyday life... that makes THIS worth it to me :) Is the time you put into your craft worth it???
Also.... My daughter is getting ready for her first high school dance... check out how cute she is ...
Before I know it my baby will be going to PROM!
Hope you have a blessed week... back to quilting I go... Phase 2 will be FUN! 120 blocks of it! lol
