WOW Its like riding a bike!
Once upon a time I did a lot of machine quilting. I am having to relearn my skills. I could blame a luv that matches quilting in mixed media art but...
Each of these monthly wall hangings will be a challenge to add more and more quilting. Spring was a good start because I think of spring as a more simple, almost minimalistic season. I also need a stiffer batting for wall hangings and this is a thermal batting that once was an ironing station. I saw an idea for a envelope style finish so I hope it works as I'm feeling like the chains have no beginning or endings. A few missing links but.... ;^)
The Needle & Thread Network is wonderfully encouraging and has fine examples of quilting that pushes the traditions in using the quilting stitch. Actually my April Showers idea may need some hand quilting. Now there is a real challenge as I been there, done it and got a stiff neck. LOL It is also why I embraced machine quilting! ;~) Check out the links in the TN&TN chain, why don't ya!!!
