This week’s post is going to be a short one because I am very busy packing for the classes I will be doing during the National Quilt Festival. I can’t wait! The festival runs for five days and I have signed up for six classes (some of them are half-day ones), so I am in for an immersive quilting experience.
The quilt show itself is always wonderful and I will be spending the lunch breaks looking at the array of quilts that will be on display.
My version of this year’s mystery quilt designed by Diana Vandeyar and run by the Good Hope Quilters’ Guild is now quilted and bound. It was a wonderful challenge and I wrote about the process of piecing it in a previous post.
As you can see from the photograph it is not closely quilted. I chose to hand quilt alongside the seam lines and hope that this shows off the beautiful design. The outside edge is machine quilted with a walking foot.
