Anna gets a second quilt, this time the summer variation. That means a cotton batting instead of a wool batting and more light colors.
Ayubowan - ආයුබෝවන්
I suggested the double-irish-chain-pattern and she agreed.
Block A in the making:
If you take a closer look and are familiar with the pattern, you can see that I made Block B the wrong way. I was lucky to discover it before I made the 20 blocks!
Okay - here is the real Block B.
And the back is so perfect - the quiltpolice would be happy!
And the same question as ever: how do I quilt the quilt?
Freemotion would be great - with all these huge white spots between the blue blocks. But I knew from Ayubowan Winter how bad freemotion works with the flannell backing. And I want to be this quilt as different from the first one as possible. So I chose straight line-stitching.
I started by making a test-sandwich, with shirt-scraps, cotting-batting and flannell-backing.
The winter-quilt got cotton-thread on the top, so the summer-quilt got Nylon-thread.
I checked the thread-tension on the test-sandwich until it was perfect. Perfect = the quilt is soft and snuggly, but the threads are still kind of tight without loops.
