It seems as though all the quilt stars have aligned, and this week I found myself basting four quilts. Pin basting four quilts is a no-fail way to ruin a manicure!
My Talisman Quilt is ready to be quilted. I'm still working on a plan for the quilting, but I expect it will be heavily inspired by this stunning quilting work by Angela Walters. This is a quilt of my own design and I'm slowly working on a tutorial for the block which I intend to share shortly. So, stay tuned for that.
I basted my FMQ sampler quilt in order to join the backing to the quilted front layer. I did this by zig-zag stitching along each of the seams and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Thanks to Kat from Kat & Cat Quilts for sharing this genius idea last week. The zig-zag helps to keep bulky QAYG seams nice and flat. Plus i love the extra texture that this adds. I'm about 60% finished stitching down the binding, so I'll have a finish to share soon.
Finally, I basted up a couple baby quilts that are essentially a selvage mission from a custom Etsy order that fell through. I think they turned out kind of cute, all things considered.
I've since quilted the green one with an allover stipple, and am trying to decide what to do quilting-wise with the red one. What do you think? Stick with a speedy stipple, or try something else?
I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
