I love to quilt little things like placemats, table runners and mini-quilts. It is awesome because I get the excitement of starting a new project and the gratification of finishing it, without the 5-10 hours of intense quilting. So when Emily asked me if I would mind quilting her little quilt, I was all for it!
Emily asked me to quilt the colored hexagons in the background different than the neutral parts. I think it was a great call, it definitely enhances the pattern.
Now I would be remiss if I didn’t address the elephant in the room…..we all know there is a huge debate and I would love to set the record straight. I know that no one asked my opinion but I feel the need to say how I feel about the subject…..(deep breath)
I think it is totally ok to quilt within the embroidery portions of a quilt…..whew! Feels good to get that off my chest….
However, since the embroidered area was small and this quilt won’t be used a lot, I think that just quilting around the outside looks great! This fun little quilt is sure to brighten up anyone’s day and the pattern is available on her website.
I hope that you all have a fantastic Easter weekend. I am looking forward to Monday, when I get to share some exciting news!
