I quilt :: up and down

Last week i quilted all the panels of my Happy Herringbone quilt, so this week it was time to join them, add the backing, and do the second part of the quilting - long lines up and down either side of the seams. I set my stitch length a bit longer for this, and I have to admit I prefer the shorter stitches. Also, I think because of the weight of the quilt and having some trouble with controlling it through the machine, there is quite a bit of variation in the stitches.

If you'd like more info about the quilt-as-you-go method I'm using for this quilt, the tutorial is on Maureen Cracknell's blog here.

  1. I can't wait to see this quilt finished Bron! And I learnt some tips about wrestling big quilts during my Craftsy class - remind me to tell you all about them.
