An update on the activity at the quilting frame and a bit of background info on the whys and wherefores.
I first set the quilt on the frame lengthways and did as much basic outline quilting as I comfortably could. This was what I refer to as the first pass. Quilting patchwork is nowhere near as straightforward as working wholecloth! Seam allowances to deal with and all that good stuff. But you knew that …..
Second pass comes after taking the quilt off the frame and putting it back on widthways (longer lengths of tape required at either side) and then continuing to complete the outline quilting.
Pass One, row 1
Pass One row 2
Pass One row 3
Off the frame ready to turn to widthways
Pass Two row 1
I still have no idea what, if anything, I will quilt in the sashings and borders but there is plenty of time to think about that. The lovely thing about having a quilt set up on a frame (and the necessary space) is that you can just go and sit and put in a few stitches when you can. I’m doing a minimum of 45 minutes each day and making good progress so far.
