I mean the “Forest and Loons” quilt. I hope not ‘cuz this is one enjoyable quilting (for me!). I finished the leaf motifs on the cream (checked), tone-on-tone blocks and did half of the remaining center blocks (that had fairly “busy” prints on them) with a repeat of the swirly vine stitching. That motif will be done in the outer leaf printed border, also. The narrow brown border is SID (Stitch in the Ditch) and will be left without further stitching to give the quilt a place to “rest the eyes”. Here’s a photo of the whole top, as a reminder to what’s been goin’ on…………… You may, also, visit yesterday’s post here. The vine was stitched in those outer green(ish) corners and in the blocks between the brown HST (Half Square Triangle) and the solid cream blocks.
Here are the threads I’ve been using: I’ve laid them on the blocks they were used on and, in the photo below, is the thread used on the very center and the outer vines………………….. The thread below and above (on the green plastic cones is Isacord poly and the red plastic cone is Aurifil cotton. The thread on the blue is Marathon poly # 2276
The thread used in the bobbin, as always, is Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly, 70 wt.
