More Quilting !

Hi everyone

I've spent the week quilting the butterfly quilt.


This is by far the largest quilt I have machine quilted.



I'm working pebbles in the turquoise border and a small stippling in the churn dash blocks.  In this photo they still have to be worked in the center.


So far I am up to the second turquoise border.


I don't know if i will be doing much on this today as I have a very sore back - must've pulled a muscle and didn't sleep much last night because of it.

I have started another project using up leftovers.  I will show it to you soon. In fact I might work on that today as it is much smaller.
Have a good weekend .
Rhianon.

PS today I'm linking up with Sarah from Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  Head over to her blog - she has a beautiful, colourful Jacobs Ladder quilt today.  enjoy.

Wow, I'm impressed with your quilting. Those pebbles take lots of time. This is going to be a real achievement for you when its done. It's a beautiful quilt!

It's looking great, Rhianon. I can't wait to see how you finish it. Check your positioning while machine quilting in case your injury is as a result of being at the machine for hours -- I know that aggravated my back injury earlier this year.

Hi MR. You are SO right. I have just realised it is my poor posture and do you know I've heard quilters talk about raising up the front of their machine and now I know why.
I.ve rolled up a kitchen mat and done just that and it feels better already. Going to stop now for the day and go and play with my transfer foils that I got at the quilt show
Thanks for your comment- appreciate it.
Enjoy your weekend. x

Wow that is just beautiful. I LOVE the quilting. And yes good posture makes all the difference in the world. Can't wait to see it completed.

Wow, this quilt is beautiful! I love sunflowers with blue. Probably my favorite "floral" combination. Your quilting looks great! Take it easy for a few days until your back feels better!

Connie said...

Beautiful quilting Rhianon and I agree with M-R 8...watch your posture when quilting. I also try and get up and walk around when it is time to change the bobbin.

Denise Russell said...

Rhianon, how exquisite! I hope your back feels better soon. Are you higher than your sewing machine? Wanna a back massage? :-)
