Quilting makes the quilt

After the hassle of choosing and cutting fabrics and the sometimes painstaking process of piecing all the scraps together, comes the relaxing part of QUILTING!
It's such a rewarding thing to see a bunch of patches sewn together transform from a piece of fabric into a real quilt.
Hard to capture in a picture, but I tried to make some "before and after" shots.

I like how a block changes after it's quilted and i LOVE to see a quilt emerge. Every now and then I spread the whole piece on the floor to see the difference between unquilted parts and finished blocks.

Happy Joy quilt is almost done: one border piece left to quilt and then, my least fav, the binding. Hopefully I can show it all done by the end of the week, just before a full workweek starts again..


  1. Helemaal mee eens. Quilten maakt de quilt. Maar wat kun jij mooi quilten. Heb de foto's vergroot omdat ik dacht dat het machinaal was gedaan. Maar gezien jouw relatie met de naaimachine leek me dat sterk! Als ik zo mooi zou kunnen handquilten zou ik het ook niet machinaal doen!

  2. I love all the colours put together! Can't wait to see this one all quilted.
