Back to our originally scheduled program...
Now that the big stitch quilting obsession has passed, I am working on my block of the week blocks again. Above is my simplified cotton version of Lisa Bongean's wool version, which is below.
This block need lots of stuff still added to it, but it is coming along.
While I was in the hand quilting frame of mind, I hand quilted this one too. I am doing something wrong with the blanket stitching...it is pulling away from the edge of the circles to the center, after rinsing the quilt. Tell me how to do it right?? Is my tension not tight enough?? I do this by hand...Thanks!!! Remember to sign up, if you like, for my giveaway last post...
Ok, here is a close up...I am muffing it up somehow...it looks great at first, but then it pulls like this...now you experts, what in the tarnation am I doing wrong??
