I love piecing a quilt top, and I love quilting, but somewhere in the middle of free motion quilting details I feel like I am walking through thick mud, making VERY slow progress. I did a lot this weekend, but there is still lots to go. Perhaps I need to make better choices in how I quilt things. I do love dense quilting, but less can be more. Too late for this one though.
I decided to attack each block as a single entity.
Wood grain and skyline background for the totem pole
Veins on the maple leaf (still undecided on the background of this one
Rocky shore below the lighthouse
stippling background for the snowflake
And a glassy reflection for the ice, as well as “Made in Canada 2017” on the hockey stick.
pretty happy in general, just at the point where I want to be finished. Now.
And my older son’s All Star baseball team starts their district tournament tomorrow, everyday for a week, so not going to have this out for another week. Go Lakehill! I will be out there cheering.
