I think that’s what I’m calling this quilted landscape piece. In between the lines on the landscape beneath, I’m working a little on the moon up above:
I’m using my own hand-dyed cotton threads to work some little seed stitches over the surface. I notice that on the close-ups you can see almost every piecing stitch. I’m not sure that I like to see that much detail! I don’t have a huge range of colours in ‘ordinary sewing’ threads, so I tend to use neutral greys, creams and beiges for piecing.
I have a busy weekend: the wool batting arrived yesterday so I will need to brace myself for a day crawling about on the floor stretching, measuring, pinning and tacking quilt layers. Not my favourite of quilting jobs; I always find pinning and basting a large quilt very tiring. I also usually end up pinning it to the carpet. Good job I have some nice simple relaxing patchwork to piece in the evenings.
