|Look what my dear sweet husband sent to me at work yesterday! He's the BEST!|
|I was inspired by Leah Day's post yesterday about stippling to give texture.|
|I stitched some random lines and then stippled on a very small scale around them|
|I was quite pleased with the effect.|
|This was the last block. A simple loop de loop. I thought it was a tribute to finish with a very simple design!|
So my questions for Leah this week is regarding batting. What type of batting do you normally use? Do you use different batting for different types of projects? Without doing trapunto, which batting would best show off the quilting in the top block? (Sorry Leah if I'm asking more than my allotted questions)
Hopefully by next week I will have the quilt trimmed, the binding on and a mosaic of all the different blocks.
Other projects this week include creating a block and writing a tutorial. Woohoo, I'm guest blogging tomorrow for Melissa at Happy Quilting for tomorrow's Try New Things Thursday. I can only show you a sneak peak.
|The block is made from 3 jelly roll sized strips of fabric.|
