All of the blocks was done on the back side of the silk and/or satin, so for the sasching I used the front/shiny side and stitched wavy lines with the walking foot. The borders was again done on the backside.
|The first border I stitched just did not work, so I free motioned the 4 x 1,5m borders with this paisley pattern.|
Below are close-ups of the blocks with the quilting that had been done.
This is my husband's favourite by far. As I was on sick leave during November, I manage to finish the top without him knowing about it. All what was left to do was the borders for which I initially wanted to buy more of the Thai silk I used for the cornerstones. But as the fabric was already bought in 2010 and out of town, I had no luck. Luckily I had enough left overs to use.
Now just to figure out how to keep the animals off the bed!
