Quilting Tiles

Not much new to report from Fluffy Sheep HQ.  I am spending a lot of time quilting Tiles.  I loaded her onto the frame several days ago, then pondered my quilting pattern.  It's the easiest way to keep her from wrinkling while I think.



I finally decided on a pantograph that combines waves and loops.  Together they remind me of snowdrop flowers.  I guess I am itching for spring.  I like how the softness of the pattern will set off the angular piecing, too.


I wound 5 bobbins (which may not be enough!) and dove in.


Several days into quilting and I am feeling more confident.  I have a LOT to learn yet, but I am enjoying the process so long as I take my time and do not put myself under any pressure.



I hope there is a finished quilt to show you in no time!  I have my binding fabric picked out and ready to go!

Still green with envy, I keep looking to see if there are any second hand ones going and there never are. This looks amazing.

Oh Cindy what a lot of fun you are going to have! You are so right not to put yourself under any pressure. Otherwise it would just drain the fun out of the experience!
