|Bats on Parade|
|Jack-o-lanterns on Parade|
The detail is just so whimsical...with bats, stars, swirls and even some phrases like 'trick or treat', 'boo' and 'spooky', using variegated thread. Judy has done another outstanding job.
My mum also did the blanket stitching around the jack-o-lanterns and bats for me...bless her. Maybe she will do my quilt labels for me as well. She has an embroidery function on her machine and it does script.
|sewing in the ditch to catch the back side of the binding...lots of pins!|
I can't say that I found it faster than hand stitching the back ( I did miss out on that time sewing in front of the tv), but I'd say that it would get easier each time. It's nice to learn different methods in quilting.
