Pinning & Quilting


I rummaged around in my stash of blue fabrics and pulled one of my favorites, which has been "maturing" in my stash for sufficient time to be used.


If you're seeing a pattern here with the rich blues, you're on target...  love cobalt blue!  Even have a soap dish that I use for collecting basting pins...


Once I had the table runner pinned... it was off to the machine and do some quilting.  I did some ditch work along the sashings but needed to do something with the 10" finished blocks.... so I decided to follow major seams of the designs.   Can you see the Snail's Trail outline?


Here is the Dutchman's Puzzle from the back with the central pinwheel outlined.


Now to trim and bind....

  5. Oh my goodness! Not only my favorite color, but in teacups too?! Be still my heart! ♥ I'm delighted you chose to outline the patterns, that was an idea I had when you were contemplating the how. Beauty-full! And hey, I'm also sandwiching and pinning today and can reveal the secret quilt on Sunday.
