Sew Silly Sisters Scrap Blocks

My art group met today. We brought our quilted scrap blocks and discussed how we are going to attach them to our quilted background. Check out the quilting on the black background! Click the image to enlarge it.

I'm going to put the binding on the black quilted background and the sleeve. I brought home five of the six blocks. The sixth is still being worked on. Here is a taste of what it will look like. Again, click to enlarge.

I will take closeup images of each block later when I can show you all six along with the names of the makers. Here is mine though.

And since you can't really see the quilting from the front, here is the back.

I quilted this Monday on Hattie. I learned that I need to slow her speed way down, like 10%, in order to stitch in the ditch with Hattie. I purchased a 12" by 3" long arm ruler recently for sewing straight lines with Hattie. I haven't even opened it yet though. I was sewing so slowly and following the seam lines that I didn't worry about using the ruler. I think it turned out as well or better than it would have with the ruler.

Great blocks! And they will look amazing on that black background. I really like your border fabric. Your quilting looks great. Looks like you are getting along well with Hattie!

I love those blocks, especially the ones with the curved piecing. The colors look so delicate (I guess that's the word I want!) against the black background. Great job!
