This past weekend I started the quilting on my sugar block club quilt. In the Craftsy classes by Ann Peterson, she advocates stitching in the ditch so I started with outlining the blocks and flying geese border with matching thread. The nice thing about this technique is that each block is easy to quilt separately. But not all the way around, because I am also experimenting with her technique of splitting the batting to reduce bulk.
I am using a 90/14 Schmetz quilting needle, so far the tension is very good. I am using these threads as well as an off-white. Stay tuned!
So my two targets for the week are:
finish work on the Halloween quilt top (ETA, I don’t have enough units of the purple! I’ll get as far as I can)
-Finish quilting at least 3 blocks on the sugar block club quilt
