Quilting the Belconnen Beauty Quilt






I've finished quilting the Belconnen Beauty Quilt project... and boy oh boy, I was out of practice. My shoulders are rather sore this morning.

I stitched around the hexagons to make them look a little bit more 'puffy'. I then did some teeny tiny stipple quilting around the central designs. Getting around those leaves was tricky, but hey, it's done now and I'm loving the texture.



Around the outer hexagon border, I pebble quilted. Again, I really love the texture of the quilting and enjoy running my hand over it. 

I've added a hanging sleeve, incase I ever decide to hang it somewhere around the house and am slowly sewing the binding to the back. With so much quilting and thread to content with, getting the needle through the backing is slower than usual. I'll be pleased when it's all finished and will come back to share it along with all of the details.


In other news, now that Bluprint is not around any longer, I'm signing up with Creative Bug to see what their online classes are like. 3 Months of Creativebug for $5 seems like a great way to try out their classes.

It turned out beautifully! I haven't done such detailed quilting for a while, but you can be glad that it was a small quilt! You certainly made it beautiful, and I do hope you find a good spot to hang it, for admiring.

Thanks Yvonne. I really enjoyed doing this type of quilting on a smallish quilt. Not sure I'd have the patience (or fortitude) to do this on a large one.

Anorina @SameliasMum said...

Thanks Fiona. It was fun to play with. It had been a while since I'd quilted pebbles.

Anorina @SameliasMum said...

Thanks Karen. They're about back to normal now, but it goes to show that quilting is a workout :-D

Anorina @SameliasMum said...

Thanks very much Baukje :)

Thank you xx

Anorina @SameliasMum said...

Thank you so much. Yes I agree it was fun to do on a small quilt, but I don't think I'd attempt anything this detailed on a larger one. I was chatting with mum on facetime last night and showed her my progress and she really loved it, so I might give it to her once it's finished. I'm sure she'll have somewhere in her home to hang it :)

Thank you very much :)

That is quite seriously gorgeous, and a VERY joyous project so please hang it in your home. Or I'd be happy to hang it in mine. ;-) xxx
