I have finished the hand quilting on all nine blocks of my Log Cabin quilt and moved on to the borders.
I've never done very much hand quilting, so I put my stitches somewhere in between "Big Stitch" and "primitive!" But it is definitely something I've ended up enjoying very much!
I've also loved revisiting every favorite fabric scrap that I made these blocks out of, as I stitch from one color to the next.
The 6 inch wide borders are made of the yellow and white polka dots that you can see best in the first picture. I've been trying to decide on a design that I could quilt in the borders, besides more straight lines. Maybe some simple flowers? I need to do some research and thinking about this next step!
This week, my Christmas present to myself arrived in the mail! I've done a lot of quilting with my walking foot in the last few years, but I'm excited to learn more, from THE expert!
