Hand quilting a long. Kathy is hosting a hand-quilt-a-long which I have happily jumped into! All the information to join this HQAL is here. I have chosen my grandmother’s flower garden that I started awhile back and has been sitting in it’s box because I didn’t care for the surface embroidery.This is the start. Each flower will have the same yellow center, then a darker second ring, and a lighter coordinating third ring. Each flower will then have the white around it and will be attached to the green. Where there are not green hexis, green hexis will be added. All are hand pieced but then I got lazy. Instead of doing what I really had in mind (small hand embroidered flowers and leaves), I used my machine to add the surface embroidery you see in the above photo. I truly hate it. I will be ripping all those stitches and then adding my own hand embroidered ones. The quarter is to show the size of each hexi.
The next flower will be those fun purple colors that you see. Hopefully I’ll have some good progress to show the next time.
