Pickle Dish is a top!
I followed the pattern in Kaffe Fassett's book Quilt Romance.
This will be a wedding quilt for one of my granddaughter's hope chest. She just turned 10 so I have plenty of time for hand quilting. (At least I hope I have plenty of time...no one really knows these things for sure).
I started a little bit of hand quilting on it last night. Well, the thread I bought is machine quilting not hand quilting so I think it is 30 wt instead of 20 wt so I had a difficult time threading the needle. I guess I'll have to change the size needle I use. To start with I'm going to stitch inside the line on every other pickle in the arches. The thread I'm using matches the maroon? burgundy? color in that background fabric.
Slow Sunday Stitching?
