I don’t think I posted my Gypsy Wife finished top. I finished hand basting it this week so it’s ready to be hand quilted using big stitch technique. Last night I pulled out 6 different bright threads to use – Finca Presencia size 12 & 16.
And here’s Hippy Hippy Shake (aka Vintage Spin) which has been pin basted ready for FMQing. I was thinking to do a spiral of some sort in each of these blocks to add to the spinning nature of it but I’m second guessing myself. Two things contributed to the problems I’m having with this quilt….my 1/4″ seam must not have been perfect and the bias cut of the blocks has left the quilt top with some bubbles/ripples. I might need to go with a less dense quilt pattern in order to keep the puckers at bay.
