i know you've seen this quilt before. but i'm sucked in by the lure of prizes, so i'm entering this quilt in the Blogger's Quilt Festival. Do follow the link if you like looking at quilts!
i couldn't decide if i should enter this in the bed quilt category, or hand quilted category. i've decided on 'hand quilted' since that's my favorite part of this quilt. it's so special to me that so many aunts, grandmas and friends helped me quilt it.
to find out a few more details about it, you can read my previous post here. or you can type 'swoon' into the search box on my blog and you'll find all the posts where i talked about it.
and a few of you wondered what design i used for hand quilting so i drew a few lines just to give you an idea.
so ya, my lines in real life are just a bit straighter:) Basically I knew I wanted to outline the shapes of the blocks. So I went 1/4" inside each piece. I also like my quilting to have evenly distributed density, so I echoed the shapes in the larger pieces. The background was a bit trickier to fill in, but I just followed the outline of the design, making my lines about 1" apart. I ended up with diamond designs between the blocks, and cross shapes in the corners.
