The Blocks are All Quilted!!
I'm happy to report that I've finished quilting the individual blocks that make up Blogger's BOM. I used a different design for each block. I liked some of the quilting designs better than others and I also quilted some way better than others! I thoroughly enjoyed the process and felt I learned a lot.
I feel more comfortable trying new quilting designs now. I did have to rip out some of my quilting so I feel I can try something new and not have to worry. My stitching is better so even ripping out is easier.
Here are close ups of the blocks.
Of course, this quilt is not done yet. I still have to quilt the sashing, set in triangles and the border. Just a few more decisions to make! I'm getting there.
