This lap quilt is on the longarm right now. I did an almost-acceptable feather in the brown end border (I only have borders at the top and bottom). Then my plan was to do a combination custom quilting in the blocks and some all-over leaves in the open spaces. Got about 1/3 of the way across, and … yuck! I was quilting it too densely. I wanted a looser, softer feel to the quilt.
So I’ve been ripping stitches out. Double yuck!
I am going to leave the feather on the border(s), stitch-in-the-ditch along the orange secondary border, and I’m undecided on the middle of the quilt. I thought I might do a big-feather panto in the middle, but it is sure to not come out to a complete repeat when I reach the borders on the bottom of the quilt. It’s been a long time since I cross-hatched a quilt, so maybe that will work.
I’m going to start a give-away tomorrow, so check back if you’re interested. Theme: Tea Party!
