My oldest granddaughter started embroidering these blocks several years ago. She soon tired of the project and I finished them. They were set aside for several years and I decided to sew them up last week.
I decided on a snowball block design and here is what I came up with.
You quilt on the Grandma’s Flower Garden quilt you have been working on since 2006!
Since joining the Maple Leaf Quilt Guild in January 2006, I have learned many new techniques. One of them has been English paper piecing. I started piecing this quilt in the fall of 2006 using this technique. Many thousands of hexagons later the piecing project has moved into a quilting project.
I started quilting this project last November. Now, I am two-thirds finished. I’m starting the home stretch and should have it finished by the first of April. I’m taking my time quilting and not rushing.
My stitches aren’t teeny-tiny and some of my stitch-in-the-ditch is crooked but I don’t care; it just makes it more uniquely my quilt.
Here are some pictures of a flower during the quilting process.
