I have the honor of quilting a grandmothers flower garden that belonged to a ladies great grandmother... of course, its hand pieced and the fabric is very fragile. I've searched the forum back to 2009 for pictures and any other comments, but i still need y'all's advice. 1) I'm thinking the traditional SID inside the hexis would be too much quilting and put too much strain on the fabric and thread. what do you think? 2) if i choose the traditional SID, how do i travel from one hexi to the next without starting and stopping in each hexi (or is that possible)? 3) I've seen several GFG done with a Baptist Fan, but i don't want to use QP on this quilt just in case something hiccuped and I think the baptist fan would also be too much quilting. ??? 3) DellD has a beautiful GFG done in a little swirl that I think might be perfect, but just looking for any other ideas or pics you might have. Y'all are always so much better than any craftsy class, QNNTV or youtube video. Thanks again for being willing to share your abundant expertise! 8-)
JeannieB posted a topic in Ask The Expert - How Should I Quilt This...?This bluebonnet quilt is going on a mission trip with Texas WMU to Barcelona Spain this summer. In the large bluebonnet block, we are adding a cowboy kneeling at the cross (Dave Hudson's block), then Texas with a star block in one of the four patches, a blue bonnet block in one of the other 4 patch blocks, a pair of cowboy boots and cowboy hat in the other blocks. The block seams are not pressed to one side ... the seams alternate back and forth and I can't stay in the ditch. Is it acceptable instead of doing a stitch in the ditch, can I just stitch 1/4" inside each block (QuiltPath will do this easily)? Or are there other options? Thanks for your help.
