Peaceful Garden has been stitched together and is ready for quilting. Just deliberating over the type of wadding to be used! I don't want to use anything too thick with a high loft, as it's going to be displayed on the wall when it's finished. I've several pieces of cotton wadding (these are easily joined together either by butting the edges together and using a machine zig-zag stitch, or by using strip of adhesive tape)...
...I've used 2 of my favourite Aurifi threads, a neutral colour on the top, and a dark grey in the bobbin, to machine quilt this. The quilting has been kept very simple, just stitching around the centre panel, around each small stitchery centre, then around the border. The fabrics in this wall hanging are very pretty - Julia from Cross Patch puts some amazing kits together!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
