Quilting row F has boosted the yards of thread count up to 655 yards. This row was mostly stitched in the ditch, but a few blocks have some different stitching designs.
Left side triangle 8 and block F1. LS triangle 8 is stitched in the ditch. I also stitched crossing straight lines in the bottom triangle. The triangle was supposed to have had ovals appliqued onto the pointy end and those nasty teeny, tiny triangles on the seamline beside the inverted M. Perfect circles to the rescue! F1 was completely stitched in the ditch.
Blocks F4, F5 and F6. F4 and F5 are both stitched in the ditch. I added straight V’s in the blue triangles for F4 and added a curvy square to the inside of F5. F6 is stitched in the ditch but quilted curvy V’s in the white squares.
Blocks F7, F8 and F9. I did not want to ditch stitch F7. I used a flower stencil and quilted that design over the top of the star. A second petal extended into the blue border. It is hard to see but I like it! F8 and F9 are both stitched in the ditch.
Block F13 and right side triangle 6. I quilted around the appliqued melons and circles in F13. You can’t tell from the picture, but they puff slightly and look very nice. RS triangle 6 is stitched in the ditch. Triangle 6 was a very interesting one to piece but is really an attractive block.
I also did some secret Christmas present sewing this week but, sorry, can’t show you anything.
