scattered petals {update}

This week I layered up my 'scattered petals' quilt, did a bit of machine quilting to secure the whole quilt, and am now adding some hand quilting. I've been combining my hand & machine quilting lately, practicality plus some big stitch quilting is a pleasing 'hand made' mix for some quilts I think. I'm using no. 8 perle thread in a soft green.









Hopefully it shouldn't take too long to hand quilt around those pretty petals

  2. Charming top, Linda. The one geometric petal adds something - a bit of a surprise or sophistication. I noticed from your first photos you took some stripes out. Glad you kept this one.

  4. Linda, I specially love blue Lobellia plant next to your scattered petals quilt! I have never combined the two techniques but definitely on my list of things to try. Your quilt looks so sweet!
