It’s taken me longer to get back to share an update about my Mum’s Garden quilt top progress than I anticipated. I had a queue of other work that demanded some attention, but I was able to finish the smaller 3″ finished curved piecing and complete the quilt top a little over two weeks ago.
The Mum’s Garden quilt top is now 60″ x 72″ and I still can’t get over how much I love this color palette. After getting the quilt top pieced, it sat for yet another week on my design wall while I procrastinated on basting the quilt. Trust me at this point that the basting is done; I took my time and spread out the work over several days.
Using the Procreate App on my iPad and finger doodling spirals, the above is a rough idea of my quilting plan. I will be using the variety of color matched 50wt Aurifil thread colors I ordered (see below) and quilting overlapping spirals across the quilt. I’m positive about where the center of the spirals for the darker colors will be centered, but I think I might need to wait and see how the actual sizing and proportions finish before determining the centers of the spirals for the off-white thread.
My biggest concern is about getting tucks in the back of the quilt with all the movement from quilting. My plan is to do several spirals and then evaluate if I need to re-baste the edges prior to quilting with the off-white thread.
What are you working on this week?
