WIP Wednesday

all free motion quilting, and no marking.  There are some wiggles but oh well. 

Still thinking about the large border

continuous curves make some interesting desgins.
Working on quilting my Postage Stamp Quilt. It's on my UFO list. (see left sidebar) I frequently call this Carey's Quilt because when I took it to show a friend the top it looked perfect on her husband Carey's comfy TV watching chair.  So now when she asks me what I am working on, I reply "Carey's Quilt".  

I am curious do you have a precise quilting plan when you start a quilt?  Or are you more like me and change your mind a hundred times before you start and again while your quilting?

Happy stitching


Linking up to Needle & Thread and Freshly Pieced WIP's


  1. I'm like you, start with one plan, end with another, changing it to suit my whim as I go along, with a few wiggles thrown in, too! I'm thinking BIG circles coming up soon for myself, but I think I'll mark them. Your postage stamp quilt looks quite marvelous.

  2. I have NO idea how I'm going to quilt it, until I am done the top. I know I should be thinking of it as I make the top, and I do think about it, but I completely draw a blank. Deciding on a quilting design is the hardest thing for me.

  3. I just don't know how you do it! I can't make a circle to save my life, let alone do it on a sewing machine! My quilting is all stippling, or stitch-in-the-ditch. That's a gorgeous quilt, would look good on my husband's chair too! LOL!

  4. I try to have a plan, but it doesn't always work out like that. Your FMQ looks good!

  5. Your FMQ looks wonderful! I spend far too much time deciding and then most of the time change my mind at the last moment.

  6. Your work is superb. I often change my mind in the process then I end up with that tool we all learn to hate the "Stitch Ripper" and undo the first stitches I made. Yak!!!

  7. Great job! I hate marking, myself. :)

  8. Definitely a try-one-idea-and-then-another quilter here. Not all my quilts turn out as well as yours, well done!

  9. It looks great and the quilting is very nicely done.
