Quilt Archaeology and Monday's With Marcus. Let's get down to Quilt Archaeology business first. Can you believe this is our last week?
I'm relatively new to hand quilting but totally addicted. I wanted to hand quilt this one and thoroughly enjoyed it. In case you have the hand quilting bug, too, here's what I did.
After basting the quilt with big red stitches, I used my Clover white disappearing pen to mark a simple cross-hatch grid. Straight stitches are where I get a lot of practice. One thing I learned.....black quilt....buy black batting!
I wanted to do something different in the border. Something I had never done before.Pen available here.) No matter how you decide to quilt your October Treat, I sincerely hope it brings you many years of happiness.

I think your October Treat is the sweetest little quilt and perfect for the month in orange and black! Thank you for the hint about the black batting.ReplyDelete
Pam ~ I love the fabrics in this fun quilt, thank you so much for the tutorials, so helpful as always! I found out the hard way too about the black batting. Live and learn, right! I loved your first video and hope there will be more coming.ReplyDelete
