I couldn't tell from the picture, do you quilt through the applique?

I did quilt through the appliqu, because I could not figure out how to do this particular quilting around them. It does not show in the picture, but is more apparent in person. The thread does seem to blend in (silver). Now I have tried it, the next time I will try patterns that are more appropriate to the blocks I produce.

Thank you for your reply. Your quilt is beautiful.

Great practice piece! Lots of negative space for your stitches to show, and I like the offset hearts, it makes them more interesting than all of them being exactly uniformly in the center. :-) :-) :-) Jacquie's class is wonderful, isn't it? I am excited about putting letters on a quilt with her technique. I am sorry to hear you don't like to FMQ, because I love it, but at least Jacquie has given us (me) great ideas and inspiration to use our walking foot in new ways! Cheers, Ladymax!

I really do prefer this type of quilting to FMQ. I have done several classes and have a local instructor who comes to my home. She is great, but the one thing that I learned is that FMQ is not fun for me. Yours is great and I got so that I was not bad, but no fun, no more FMQ. Like you I am looking forward to adding letters or words to a quilt. Enjoy your quilting time..

Very pretty. What size is each block on this project? Size of hearts?

04/25/2014 Flag

Thank you. The blocks started as 15" and after the quilting they were trimmed to 14 ".
