Wednesday WIP





Having Mr J, home from school with a tummy bug for two days, meant that I have been able to start quilting my New York Beauty blocks for my Sew Sew Modern Swap partner.  I couldn't decide on one style of quilting - straight lines or lines radiating from the centre for the whole piece, so instead have quilted each quarter individually.  I love how quilting changes the look of an item and gives it so much texture.

Just the dark border to quilt and then the binding to go on now. 

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  3. It's just wonderful! Love the colours, lots to look at, love the quilting, & I agree it so adds to the overall look, gives it movement maybe? Hm-m--m I have to say, I'd keep it too! L
