How many of you remember the Punky-Wunkin Quilt Along from last September? I finally got around to quilting my full-sized quilt top. I purchased a pantograph from UrbanElementz to do it. Usually, I'm not much of a pantograph fan, but I like the cute-factor it adds when I don't want to take forever to get a project done. I came up with a new rule for me--when doing pantograph work. Just quilt it! Then....wait 48 hours before you look at your stitching. That way you forget where all those little bobbles are and it looks great.
|My Punky-Wunking full size top is finally quilted.|
|48-hour rule: I'm not allowed to look at my pantograph quilting for 48 hours after it is sewn--that way I forget where any little bobbles may have gone.|
|This is my first time using my ellipse arc ruler. I really liked it. It gave great definition and separation between the piano keys border and the feathers.|
|Awesome photo of the back--ha ha!|
|I used Rhonda's Rulers to create curved cross-hatching. They work great. I really like their 1/4" and 1/2" increment markings.|
|Here's another sneak peak....more to come (yes, it's another "Nordic" style).|
I hope you're enjoying the QAL, more information to come on Saturday. I've decided to do KISMIF twice a month. Weekly wasn't getting enough participation. Take care!
