I was just want to thank everyone for all the generous compliments I received regarding the quilting on Baby Swoon and Mocha Trail. Thank you.
I received some emails asking questions about how I quilt, what I do, what tools do I use or suggest and how I decide what design to quilt. I love to answer questions like these, although they always make me chuckle a bit because I'm still learning the answers to all those questions myself. Truthfully, every time I load a quilt on my machine, I feel like it's my first day at a new job. Do you know that feeling? So I thought I would share some of my "process" on Mocha Trail. First of all, I take a lot of photos. Beginning to end. By the time I get to the bottom border, I guarantee I forgot how I quilted the top border. You would be amazed at how quickly you forget.
For the feathers in the red rectangles, I made a little cardboard template.
So that's some of my process. I'm not saying this is the right way to do some things, but it's what I do. Not sophisticated, but it works! :-)
