I've been doing some quilting, but moving along rather slowly. I usually do my quilting in the evening when we watch tv for an hour or two. last night I wasn't feeling well so I went directly to bed. Hopefully tonight I can get more stitches put in.
I did a mix of techniques, which you cannot see in the photo.
So I put my Photoshop skills to use! Don't laugh too hard! The original antique quilt was tied and not quilted at all. I think the ties made it darling, so I added them in cotton DMC thread at the intersections. You can see that by the asterisks. The quilting is the black lines. I didn't think it needed too much as it is a simple pattern and a simple quilt.
I kept that playful bit when I added the pink binding cut on the bias. I wouldn't usually cut it that way for a small quilt but I really wanted the spiral effect. I think it works!
I'm thinking about the first of February I'll add Mr Linky so we can have a lemonade party. I love seeing everyone's version! If you do not have a blog send me your photo and I'll add it.
