Quilting in serial form. Ever tried it? Most folks call it a quilt-along, but it is after all, October, and I’m feeling like a serial quilter – ooh, scary. On offer today is the next installment in the exciting saga of The Stitching Witches Quilt Along.
First up is the Montgomery segment. This is to be our ‘signature’ block, and I haven’t decided what I’m going to put in the blank space at the center of the block. Wait. Let me clarify that last statement: I have all kinds of ideas of what I’d like to put there, but I’ll have to do a little winnowing before I can fit what I’d like to see in that small space. Then there’s the application method: Pigma Pen? – that’s the easy route – Or hand embroidery? Decisions, decisions.
Spoiler Alert: the pen will end up the winner… guaranteed.
Next is Yankee Pride. I don’t usually have large prints suitable for a fussy cut center hanging around in my stash, but I turned up a floral that worked just fine. I may have erred when selecting fabrics for this block, in particular, the small leaf print that I used to border the red star. In hindsight, I probably should’ve used a fabric with higher contrast. But do I think that the low contrast is enough to cry do over? Nope. I adore that wee print, so it’ll stay.
