Slow Unstitching Sunday

I’m not done quilting the Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt, but I’m already thinking of the next project. And I’ve decided, this will be it.

I considered someone’s idea of using the ties as basting and cutting them out as I quilt. But in some places, the batting is very thick and in other places, it is nonexistent. So I snipped the ties on the back.

And then pulled them off the front.

I visited with Daughter #1 while doing this and the time flew by! Next, I will rip the stitches along the edge. I suspect this will get messy.

I think it looks better already! I’m so going to enjoy studying all these fabrics while I quilt this winter.

Have a great day!

  1. Now that project would almost tempt me to try hand quilting! Studying vintage fabrics is so interesting to me. Looking forward to seeing how you decide to quilt it.

    Are you going to quilt it with the fan design? I can picture it on that quilt. You’re going to have a great time studying all those wonderful fabrics!
