Lima // 7

Making nice progress with hand quilting Lima. I don't have a fix plan. I quilt a few lines and then decide how to go further. This means I have a lot of decisions to make. Some come easy, some take their time.

Infinity // 2

It has taken two months but meanwhile there is progress with this wip too. My original plan was to hand quilt but I've opted against it. I want to quilt a grid adding smaller squares to the pieced squares. So I've decided to add a more dense texture and machine quilting is the right choice in this case.

Quilting a grid isn't as easy as it may seem. You really have to go slow and keep everything flat and smooth or you will end up with puckers where the lines cross. So far it is going well.

Lima // 6

I have finished hand appliqueing the top to the background fabric. I really like the look. I'm only showing a corner here as I don't want to reveal too much for now.

I've also decided on the backing. It will be composed of these two fabrics.

I think I'm really going to like this quilt. If my hand quilting plan turns out well. Time will tell.

Lima // 5

I have decided on my next move with Lima and I'm really happy about it. I'm appliqueing the top to a solid dark background. It will frame it nicely.
