I finally got the giraffe quilt on the frame and have started quilting it.
I have it set up in my kitchen.
There's lots of light coming in from the window. I do use my lamp though to see where I am stitching.
When I am not quilting, it is covered with a sheet.
I really like the effect that quilting gives to something that is flat. It took me a bit of thinking to come up with how I was going to quilt the leaves but in the end, I just sat down and freehand drew a leaf with veins in each pieced leaf. I just have to figure out what on earth I am going quilt in the big sky area. Maybe some falling leaves...
awww - such a cute design! I love the colours your chose for the giraffes.ReplyDelete
Lovely quilting. I love that you use different green threads to match each leaf. Beautiful! ;^)ReplyDelete
