The alpahabet quilt is DONE!!!!
I am very relieved and happy.
At the same time I'm rather SAD....
Because it means soon enough I'll have to part with it,
As it's going to Australia.. :(
Sofea 'helping' me during the photoshoot..
I used tutorials provided here to help me with the alphabet quilt. I would first choose a pattern, watch the video provided in the tutorial, then draw the pattern on a piece of paper before attempting it on the quilt. It was quite tough and I had stiff neck from all those long hours of sitting in one position, but in the end I think it was all worth it and I definitely am more confident to use free motion quilting in the future.
Since I had 26 alphabet blocks plus 4 corner blocks to quilt, I was able to use different filler designs for the quilting. This allowed me to practice different designs and I find curves and circles easier to manage than squares and triangles when using free motion quilting. It also helps if you are not bare-handed when quilting, using gloves helps a lot - though leading to excessive sweating *sigh*
I am infatuated by the texture the quilting creates on the back of the quilt. I also love how the rainbow colours of the binding stands out to the contrasting white.
What do you think of the Alphabet Quilt??
