This quilt is a collaborative quilt made by a number of Aussie Hero sewers and I told you about it here.
I did lots of loop de loops on this with random stars. Tried to get a star in the centre of each block, but it didn't always happen.
I used a rayon embroidery thread in royal blue in the needle and a dark grey in the bobbin, which blended quite well with the backing fabric.
I am getting better with the loopies. Not showing you the dodgy ones LOL.
On the wording I did naïve outline around 1/4" out, and an occasional tiny star for interest.
I also quilted the recipient's name into the quilt, but I am not showing you that for privacy. I generally do that when I quilt one for AHQ to personalise it.
I have chosen a royal blue and black striped fabric for the binding, and will be making the binding on the bias so the stripe is on the diagonal.
As it is the first time I have quilted in ages, I thought it was appropriate to link in to Pretty Bobbins for I Quilt Thursday. Take a peek at what others have done.
Do you follow Red Brolly? I wanted to share with you that there have been a couple of great posts lately, full of information. The first was on how to store quilts and the other was on preparing fabric for embroidery. Hope you find them interesting.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
