…….to come along as I quilt Andreena’s Japanese Basket quilt. Here it is un-quilted. This is fairly large quilt. I am custom quilting it for Andreena.
The Japanese fabric are so rich and colourful. The narrow gold border and the wider blue and gold border compliment the centre beautifully.
Onto the frame:
To start with I am stitching in the ditch both sides of the narrow border, the setting triangles and around each basket. I have become a big fan of stitching in the ditch as it sharpens the look of the finished quilt. There are 25 blocks, it takes me 3 minutes to stitch around each basket so that’s 75 minutes plus time to ditch stitch the border and roll the quilt as required.
Tomorrow I hope to have that completed and move onto to something a little more exciting.I hope you will come back and join me as I progress.
