I will show you down further what else this book has done for me, but for now I wanted to talk about this stitch the first time I was introduced to it was watching Jen Kingwell and saw these adorable stitches for quilting your quilt. I am big stitching around the baskets but using the tacking "X" all over the quilt background.
I am finished with the applique that I am creating for the top of a quilt that is on my design wall The motif's I have used are from the book When the Cold Wind Blows and I created a layout that is pleasing and reminds me of spring, our birds are almost deafening with song celebrating the change that is coming soon.
I am very excited about this project due to creating "more" to enhance it, each project seems to help me grow in the quilting world.
On a side note I am not sure if anyone has watched the feeds of the Quilt Nerd. I am finding her very interesting she really gives a detailed view on quilts, quilts I have not seen and not just modern but antique, political, innovative just a plethora of quilts and history I am thoroughly enjoying her narrative. If you have a chance check her out it is well worth your sit and sip time.
Well back to getting things done, thank you for visiting
