Block No 1. Quilted.

Block No 1.

Quilting:-

I quilted the small quilt with smoke Monofilament on the top…..( I prefer YLI monofilament.)

I used Masterpiece 50 weight cotton on the back, warm and natural cotton batting and a 60/8 sharp needle.

To begin with a forgot to change needles and I had a microtex needle in the machine… when I changed to the fine sharp needle, there was a huge difference in the way the needle went through the fabric.

The quilt shrank 1/8th" and of course the outline is a little more wavy after the quilting. I could block it I suppose, but I think the naivety is fine.

I've left several inches of fabric around the block because I'm going to stretch the quilt over a small canvas frame. All the little quilts will be finished this way, by the end of the year, I should have a small exhibition.

The back of the quilt… however, this will be hidden when it's attached to the canvas frame.

    It is stunning, Pam. I love the way all the plants stand out from the quilting. The 3D effect is even apparent in pictures. I’d love to see it in person!
