I have been working away on some machine quilting as the temperatures permit. It was my goal to get this quilt finished for my UFO Friendship Quilters meeting at the beginning of September and I think I'll make it!
I pieced all the leftover bits from the blocks into a strip down the back and am so tickled with myself because after I make the binding, there will be hardly any fabric left from this quilt...everything was used up!
This photo shows the backing and the stitch in the ditch - horizontal and vertical seams to anchor it, and then a diagonal chain through the black squares.
I hope you can see the quilting design I ended up with on this last photo...it's hard to see the white thread on the white backing! The design is quilted free hand and I am my own stitch regulator, so it's not perfect, but it's fun!
