This quilt is my most difficult/challenging that Lenni and I have attempted so far. I started with a bargain layer cake from ebay, that blossomed into searching for coordinating fabric (at not such a bargain) and using the pattern "Go Tell it on the Mountain" that I found on Moda Bake Shop. (Wish I could give you a link, but that is beyond my skill set at this time...) Back to my quilt, this shows just how much I learned from this forum. I did cross hatching that radiates from the center block out to the four corners. I also mirrored my stitching from the pieced mountain to the setting blocks below. Did a piano key border (which I like the look, liked doing) and a couple fills. And I marked, measured and tore out.... ") This was also the biggest I have ever done. 94X94. I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for this forum. I wouldn't have such a nice quilt in my stash if it wasn't for all the encouragement, sharing and tips that are posted here. Do need to bind the monster yet.....on vacation this week, might get her done.....:)
I'm crosshatching in the background of the block around some cute little Sunbonnet Sues. I can't figure out what is the most productive way to stop stitching, tack ends, jump Sue and start stitching again ... I've tried stitch, tack, jump Sue, stitch; I've tried stitch, tack, cut, jump Sue, stitch. I've left the threads on the back side, rolled the quilt, cut the trimmed jump stitches, rolled the quilt back and did the next row. I just can't figure out what is the best process ... each one I use seems so time consuming. What do you do? Thanks for your help ... in the mean time ... stitch, tack, cut, jump, stitch....stitch, tack, cut, jump, stitch,... stitch, tack, cut, jump, stitch ... every 1/2".....
I am appreciating my 'Dawn Cavanaugh's Crosshatch Ruler' this morning as I quilt 45 degree lines on each side of a thin pink middle border. I have found her ruler to be the most stable of all of mine, due to its length, 1/4" tabs to snug in the hopping foot, and the fact that it is still thin enough for me to get my hands around. I also sprayed 505 basting spray on the back to give the ruler even more grip. Dawn, now that Off The Edge Quilting has gone out of business (I heard), will your ruler be manufactured elsewhere or should we nab them while we can with existing supplies? I see they are available from Columbia River Quilting. Dawn'sCrosshatchRuler by LadyLakeQuilting, on Flickr http://columbiariverquilting.com/ote_cavanaugh_crosshatch.html
