I wondered if embroidering this quilt might be easier than quilting it.
Embroidering cardboard is just as difficult as quilting it.
You really dont like that wadding do you eeuuuwwww
Is it worth deconstructing maybe and remodelling ?
who said that? was that me? (stands out of reach, in case you throw summat at me !!)
It’s a case of either finish it or bin it, I’m afraid. It’s gone too far to unpick. I think it will turn out ok eventually!
having said that………….I really liked the embroidery!
I assume you are rocking the stitches. Have you hooped it and tried stab stitching it?
yup, tried both ways. It’s not impossible, just not the easiest thing I’ve ever done.
Thanks for sharing. I have been wondering about the embroider v quilt question too lately.
You’ll have plenty of experience of difficult conditions by the time you finish it, won’t you!
“Embroidering cardboard is just as difficult as quilting it.”–now that’s a quote for pinning on the design board 🙂
I do like the embroidery – this makes the quilt worth twice as much.
the feeling will be amazing when it is complete! (take it from a regular stitcher of cardboard!)..though your fingers may need a little time to recover :)x
Love the addition of embroidery! When stitching ‘cardboard’ I always have a small pair of pliers handy. Helps prevent carpel tunnel which puts a stop to stitching when it crops up. Keep at it and please don’t ‘bin’ it!
Ha, I’ve used the pliers trick before now too! Never had CTS, thankfully.
Never having quilted, I can only sympathise with what this must be like – phrases such as ‘it’s always darkest before the dawn’ are probably absolutely no help whatsoever, but good luck anyway – still looks very appealing.
It will turn out awesomely, but embroidery is slow indeed. But good work out, yes? 😉
ha – I hadn’t thought of it like that! No doubt it will be doing me good 🙂
I have every faith in your perseverance skills….

You're welcome to pick your way through threads and stitches, but I'd be really grateful if you could be kind enough to refrain from pinning.
