It was a pretty long week for me. I spent a LOT of time in the car with my husband this week. So I was more ready to go for lots of walks this weekend than doing much more sitting at my sewing machine. But, I did get my machine back from being serviced, and it seems about back to normal. It is still dropping a stitch here or there, but it is basically back to its old habits which I can cope with. The tucks that I make on the back of the quilt… well, that also put a bit of a damper on my progress. I’ll get it sorted out. I’m sure of it.
I wanted long lines for this quilt, but I also wanted soft rounded edges. I like the puckers in the quilt where I change direction, I think it is going to have a great texture when it is done and washed!
And, as always, my trusty sidekick was around to evaluate my handiwork. I got about a quarter of the quilting done. Maybe I can get it fixed and finished up in another week or so.
Linking up to WiP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

That quilting is really interesting! The places you turned around look like water droplet splatters! I can’t wait to see how it looks after a washing.
That’s a great description, Renee. 🙂
Love that quilting, must try that! 🙂
Thank you, and thanks for stopping by!
That quilting is going to be very cool when it’s done. Heck–it’s already cool! I’ll be looking forward to the finish photos.
Thanks! I can’t wait to run my hands over it once it is washed… 🙂
Hi Yvonne, What is it about quilts that attracts cats – black cat on a white quilt too – great combination! I really like your little pucker spaces on your quilting – I think the quilting fits in well with the clean lines of the piecing and the little gaps add textural interest.
Thank you! I think I use the lint roller to clean and clear up my quilts from cat hair more than I do to my clothing. He especially likes it when the quilt is “tented” and he can build a nest while I’m trimming the edges for binding or putting on the binding…
Your quilting is really lovely! Do you sew from side to side or up and down?
Thank you! For this pattern my primary direction is up and down, and I work on about 1/4 of the quilt at a time because it’s a bit too bulky otherwise.
Thanks for the advice! I will try that – I was doing some woodgrainish quilting left to right last night and it all went sideways (ha) fairly quickly.
I love the quilting pattern you are using on this quilt, it adds such a great texture!
