Late today – other things to do

I‘d pinned the elements together for my pineapple quilt, but didn’t get round to stitching them until after lunch, so that I could take a photo.  Glaring faults show up but I think I can cope with those.  pineapple child;s quilt topThe next step is to add some wide borders to the long sides, to improve the proportions for a child’s bed, and then to mark the plain squares ready for hand quilting. I’ve acquired a  lovely butterfly stencil, and plan to quilt using a thickish teal-coloured thread.

    I look forward to seeing your butterfly quilting. Both my machine and hand quilting aren’t up to much, to be honest, but I am finding it much less stressful by machine quilting one block at a time for my F2F quilt – even trying some free motion quilting. I’m not sure I’d ever get anything finished if I tried to quilt by hand.

  2. It’s quite lovely. I don’t see any problem with it. I have tried quilting by hand and never been able to pull it off. Glad you can.

    Viv, these are lovely, and mistakes are in your eyes only. It’s such a pretty colour combination. The butterfly is a really great idea for the plain squares.

    The pineapple squares look lovely. I think those butterflies will cover the mistakes you see.
