How do I quilt Blooming Stripes? Part 2

Last week I shared the first part of quilting Blooming Stripes. If you want to quilt along, you can purchase the panel or the appliqué pattern and enjoy a stitch-along. Invite some friends, and have a quilty party!

Let’s pick up where we left off. It’s simpler to quilt the same colours at the same time so that we don’t spend half the time rethreading the machine. But quilting on a domestic machine does mean that physics gets involved – no I’m not about to give you a science lesson, but you do need to think about the pull of thread on three layers of fibres. That’s why you start in the centre like I showed last week.

Sticking to the centre, you can stitch the little circles in the same colour as the first petals. I don’t recommend that you go and do the border before finishing the centre. You risk your quilt pulling skew and bundling waves when you go back to the centre.

Feathers, pebbles and florals

Stitch along with me with your own panel. Blooming Stripes is available in various colours.
