I've also been working on some exchange blocks and still working on the challenge quilt for the show, but no pictures of those. Also no pictures of the quilt designs that are in the works - boy, I need more hours in the day.
Today, for a change of pace, I pulled out my Pineapple Blossom quilt which has been sadly neglected for most of the summer. Yikes! Looks like I last worked on it in March. It won't get done that way.
It is going to be awhile before it is done - there is a lot of dot-to-dot involved, and it is a big quilt, being pushed through a not so big sewing machine harp. but if I commit to just tackling it a bit at a time, it will get done! I'm using a combination of ruler work and freemotion stitching to do the geese - all ruler is tough with this much quilt.
Once I finish the dot-to-dot I need to decide on whether there will be any fill around them The photo below shows that I've echoed the dot to dot sections, but I'm trying to decide if I need a fill between them and the diamond shapes. What do you think? Any ideas for me? I'm thinking I do, just to flatten them down some, but I want to keep the quilt soft, too, as this one is going to be used.
I'd love to hear what you think!
