WIP Wednesday-FMQ

My And Sew On quilt is basted and I've done all the stitch-in-the-ditch around the blocks. Now I get to play!

This design is one of the diamond variations from Angela Walters' Craftsy class, Dot-to-dot Quilting. It was very simple to stitch, just using chalk to mark the lines through the middle of the block for reference. I'm pretty sure there's not a single straight line in the whole thing, though. Practice, practice, practice, right? I'll get there someday.

It shows up a little better in this shot of the back. I think next time I use this design I'll keep the diamonds farther from the sides of the block so I have more room to fill in around them. I think that would help make the diamonds stand out more.

I'm still trying to decide how to stitch the paper-pieced blocks. I'm thinking swirls in some of them, but that sewing room block has so much detail I don't know what to do with that one. I'll have to ponder and stare at it some more, I guess.

I link to these places.


  1. Great quilting Leanne, congratulations on getting to this stage too!

  2. One of the exciting things about quilting is the opportunity for decision making at every stage. I guess as you look and ponder it will slowly become clearer as to how to quilt the next blocks.

  3. Your quilting is incredible, Leanne! Looking good! Hope you will find your inspiration for those paper pieced blocks as well!

  4. What fun quilting! Can't wait to see the rest of the quilt :-)

  5. I think it looks great! A quilt like this would intimidate me. :)

  6. The decision of how to quilt certain blocks is always a challenge for me. Sometimes I have to look at the quilt for quite some time before I can go forward. I'm still struggling with that! Good luck! You've done some great quilting here! Looks wonderful!

  7. Lovely quilting Leanne - and let us celebrate the wobble - it makes it all personal, individual and gives each piece its own character!

  8. I like the irregularity, Leanne, it is far more individual.

  9. your quilting is so amazing. What awesome texture! I understand what you mean about the diamonds, but I really think they do stand out beautifully.

    Thanks for linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday!
