I want to begin this post by telling you all how overwhelmed I was with all of your sweet comments on my blogiversary post yesterday. You are all so very kind. There is still time to leave a comment on yesterday’s post if you would like to enter the giveaway. I will be drawing winners at midnight tonight and announcing on Thursday. On to today’s business.
I finally got this top done for Daughter #3. She wanted me to quilt a random grid on it. This is how I do it. I load the top and using my channel lock, I quilt several straight ones across the top. I don’t mark of measure anything.
Then I remove the channel locks and add freehand lens in between until the density’s about what I’m looking for. I’m not looking for perfection and my spacing varies from an inch down to about half of an inch.
Here’s a look at the back so far.
And the front.
After I’ve done the entire quilt, I remove it from the frame, turn it 90 degrees and load it again.
This is a bit trickier than it sounds! Then I repeat the same process until the entire top is filled in.
Looks pretty good so far!
It is like quilting the whole thing twice, but the results are so worth it.
Have a great day!
