In Craftsy's first-ever Block of the Month, Amy Gibson brings you 10 specific quilting techniques - appliqué, string quilting, paper piecing and more.
Plus I went and got my stapler and used it instead of basting.. the smallest ones were hard to work with.. I most likely wont do this type of quilting again.. but will see.. I will have to have a piece I have to do
that looks really cool
have you found the block of the month quilt yet.. Amy shows different techniques .. and some are very interesting..
Nice take on this one with flowers instead of sun. I too am not so sure this is the type of block I would want to do a lot of, but haven't done mine yet. Hand quilting is not my prefered method, but willing to learn.
Well I am not into hand sewing.. and I did not do any hand sewing.. read the rest of my blogs on this page.. you may be able to sew it too with you machine
used spray baste to set the blocks on the line hexi block.. uses a decorative stitch on my machine.. make sure that you Iron your hexis with a very hot iron and a a very hard surface.. this allows the seam fold lines to be very crisp .. I did not use any starch.. I do not have any and wanted to get busy sewing.. I found directions to make a wooden ironing board using mdf , tin foil and the regular ironing board cover cloth.. do not over pad this as the padding does not make as crisp a fold.. I also used a substructure piece of cloth to add the hexis to first.. then sewed them all to the base fabric.. that worked very well..
I love this your choice of colors is amazing!
