I’m ready to quilt my version of Honouring Emma, by Lori Smith, I’ve had it sandwiched and sitting by my machine all week, waiting for inspiration on how to quilt it. With pieced blocks, sashing, and appliqued blocks, along with setting triangles and a wide border…there’s a lot of space there for some interesting quilting!
Decisions finally made! I’ll start with straight stitches on the yellow sashing and inner border…then some free motion stitching on parts of the actual applique and echo stitches on the background of the applique blocks. I’ll think up some design for the pieced blocks, or find one from the Quiltmaker designs, and echo those designs on the dark sashing. Finally, it would be nice to try some feathers on the border.
