Maple Leaf Star, partially quilted
My talented friend Sandy does custom long arm work. She's so popular that her wait list is usually about nine months! Together we had a plan for this quilt. She basted it and custom quilted the motif in the blocks. She also quilted the borders by following the shapes of the paisley print. I'll quilt the sashing with stitch-in-the-ditch using my walking foot. Since the quilt is fully stabilized, I can get the stitching down into the ditch better on my domestic machine. But since I can't FMQ, there's no way I could have managed the blocks or the border. So, a collaborative quilting effort.
Detail, Maple Leaf Star
One of my goals for this month is to get this finished and bound, so I need to clear space in my sewing room and get busy.
