Welcome from Port Orange, Florida USA
(near Daytona Beach 🙂
I am Kathi B. Clower!
I have been working fairly regularly every day on making triple diagonal lines on the Sister Quilt or Hammock Quilt … as I have come to start calling it. I finally finished the gross or major part of the quilting! I put in the final diagonal line this morning and planned phase 2! I started this exactly 3 weeks ago so that is pretty fast for me 🙂
Here is a section from the middle and bottom of the quilt… it is a good sized throw… will have to measure accurately after the quilting, washing and drying is done 🙂
The triple line action doesn’t show much now … but when phase 2 in complete I think the design will be well complemented.
The plan is to quilt in the rhombuses a squared figure eight and fill in the bow ties.. kinda looks like the bow ties are being reflected in the white space…
I wanted to get jazzy with the thread color but that doesn’t work because my backing is white… so I will use my lovely YLI 40 wt hand quilting thread for this part of the project… I debated also using a backstitch instead of a typical quilting running stitch…. but after a trial run I like the quilted look I think… how about you?
The blue lines will go away with the wash… and the humidity I quilt in… so I am only adding them a quilting amount at a time 🙂
A few blocks of the Hammock Quilt done 🙂
And the bottom right corner completed with my name added (date will be added when I finish quilting before binding)….
The 13 year old UFO quilt I finished and mailed has been slept under and cuddled under with the grandkids and thoroughly blended into everyday life… that makes THIS worth it to me 🙂 Is the time you put into your craft worth it???
Also…. My daughter is getting ready for her first high school dance… check out how cute she is …
Before I know it my baby will be going to PROM!
Hope you have a blessed week… back to quilting I go… Phase 2 will be FUN! 120 blocks of it! lol
