Quilting Jane, Row L

The quilting on Row L has been completed.

Left side triangle 2 and block L1. By the time I was piecing the triangles, I had gotten pretty good at paper piecing. The point of triangle LS 2 was supposed to have an applique diamond, but I paper pieced it. It looks much better pieced than my applique.

Instead of simply quilting another square inside of a square, I’m quilting this curved square design. I think it looks more interesting. I had a friend stop in last week to look at the quilt, she knew the name of this quilting design. I don’t remember what she called it! I should have immediately written it down.

Blocks L2 and L3.

Blocks L4, L5 and L6. Curves make a more interesting quilting design in L4 than just stitching in the ditch would be.

IMG_0011Blocks L7, L8 and L9. I should have reversed the colors in L7, too much white. Used Baptist Fan to make a more interesting quilting design instead of just stitching in the ditch.

Blocks L10, L11 and L12. Here are 2 of the blocks I added circles to instead of the triangles Jane used. My applique skill isn’t good enough to applique those teeny, tiny triangles!

Block L13 and right side triangle 12.

Yards of thread used to date – 192.

IMG_0022I’ve sewn half of the Cherry Blossom quilt together. Whoops, see that one B block turned the wrong way? At least it is hasn’t been sewn into a row yet. That is an easy fix.

Linking up with Esther’s WOW, Freshly Pieced and My Quilt Infatuation.

  1. What a show stopper! Love the quilting! Also love the Cherry Blossom quilt. So much better to lay the blocks out that jumping in and sewing them together…. Prevents rippig parties – I have been to too many of those. LOL.
