This fun quilt is commission piece number two being prepped to go under the needle. This is so large I could not get a photo of the whole thing - not even a quarter full here. Just look at all that scrappy goodness! And the bubble gum pink and pretty shirtings. This one is all hand stitched with great care.
A few people mentioned about wetting areas to help with the wavy. I don't like to use this method too often as you have to just 'mist' not get too wet, and the concern of whether old fabrics are color fast. I have my trusty little misters - one distilled water and the other a secret mix. Thread at the ready should I find a little spot that needs repair (just one). This one was flat and square - I can't wait to quilt.
In this photo there are 6 blocks that had little pieces 'added' so she had a full triangle - so precise in matching and hiding. Can you spot them? This is what led me to think someone else did the machine stitching on the first quilt. I would have loved to have met this quilter.
We are brutally cold again, so a good day to quilt,
