Karol at the Window - The Second Stage of Quilting
This is the latest stage in the wall hanging of Karol at the Window - the second layer of wadding needs to be quilted. The quilt is now a proper sandwich, with a backing and wadding. I have had to do a second line of quilting around the outline, again using the Singer 15K hand machine, with the hinged cording foot. I always have the foot set to the right hand side of the needle.
Here is the hand with the second line of quilting finished. I have used a dark colour that will not show up against the background.
The next stage was free motion quilting the background - just a simple infill of parallel(ish) lines to represent the snow outside.
I am going to use a few different coloured threads so the snow outside doesn't look too monotonous, which is a good excuse for a quick shopping trip this afternoon. Anything to put off quilting the tiny little spaces between the fingers...
Linking up again to Leah Day's blog for Free Motion Friday - lots of other projects to see there!
