I am getting back on track, and hopefully by April I will be on track and on time with this About A Quilt Sampler QAL post.
If you are new here, and want to know more about this QAL and join in, click the button below or the one one my sidebar. It will always bring you to all the post related to this QAL.
Today I am sharing with you ideas on how to quilt your second block.
Same as the first block, I would really recommend you to practice doodling your quilting design. You can download a pdf file with the outline of this second block here.
I did some practice and tried different designs. It is also helpful to practice your travelling lines using this method, try not to pick up your pen and travel from one point to another via the ditch or the outside of the block.
For my block, I first make an echo line inside the cards. For all straight lines, I usually mark them with water soluble pen first (using a ruler) as I find it more precise to quilt on this markings. Otherwise, you can go "organic" and a little wonkies won't hurt I guess.
Here is my block from the backside. This side shows more of the quilting design as it is on a plain fabric. As you can see, I do a lot of travelling on the ditch and outside of the block.
I hope you will have fun quilting yours. Share them on the flickr group. I would love to see your version!
