little quilt. It turned out really cute.
First off I want to say thanks to all who commented on the before and after picture of Lisa's quilt on my last post. I always get so excited to see my own quilting progress on quilts and even more excited to hear what other have to say!! So, thanks again!
There were a couple of questions brought up on my quilting process and so I wanted to hopefully, answer those questions.
How I did the arc's...the perfect arcs. Freehand? No way!
I used an acrylic circle:
I have quite a few different size circles and ended up using this one, I like how it created a gentle arc.
Another questions was how did I do the flower's and did I make them continuous?
Yes, each flower was continuous on their own but not with the rest of the quilting. I started the flower in the center, did a petal at a time, then ended in the center. Yes, it was a lot of starts and stops for the flowers but being a small quilt, it didn't bother me at all. No, I do not bury my threads. I never have and never will. I stay stitch at the beginning and end and snip the threads when I'm done.
Hope that answered some questions.
It was nice doing up a little quilt for once, it's been a while. It went quick but was very gratifying. Good job on the quilt Lisa!
