Animal ABC quilt
I’ve been working away during the last week or so my Animal ABC quilt. When I last left it last time, the layers were pinned together and I had stitched in the ditch around each block. So now was the time to machine quilt around each letter and corresponding animal.
Q for Quokka, R for Rhino
I’m not a machine quilting expert, by any means, and don't find machine quilting easy or relaxing – so don’t like to spend too long at the machine each session. Doing it in short bursts suits my back and shoulders better, an hour at a time, then going back to it again during the day. The middle blocks have been finished, so I’m working my way around the edges of the quilt now.
Some cats like to sit up close to their owners to watch this quilting business. Not Gemma – she’s always ready for another afternoon nap somewhere comfy.
Sleepy time again
