Carol Ann Waugh asked:
Wow. You went farther than I did! I love this. You are right, turning corners and sewing over a seam are definite challenges but you accomplished both perfectly! The world is opening up to creative quilters and thank for sharing!!!
Darns answered:
Thanks, Carol. Maybe a little echo quilting to border the dec stitching? - we'll see
wiscris asked:
this is a really pretty idea., plus, Darns, I think you are the one who recommended the superior threads web site to me and I want to thank you again. I can't find where my original question went and I wasn't sure if you got my thank you from before, so thanks again!
Darns answered:
Thanks, Wiscris, Superior Threads is a great resource. I can see using decorative stitching in a number of ways in pieced quilt blocks.
