Previously, I've made a couple of similar projects (here and here) using the Love U panel by Deb Strain. However, I've always tried to make each and every quilt different and unique. After all that's what handmade is all about right??
I've used Happy Campers plaid brown borders for this quilt
You might not be able to really scrutinize it from the pic above, but the pic of the back below will reveal the stitches better. Though I've done free quilting motion before (Alphabet quilt), working with this panel, I've always stick to free quilting the existing pattern on the panels.
However, I'm happy to report that this time around, I've added some flowers and clouds here and there.. My biggest problem is I'm too cautious and dare not use contrasting thread to make the stitches stand.. Any suggestions on how to overcome this..? May be I should practice more on some scrap projects?? *sigh*
I binded the quilt with my handmade tape made from scrap fabric
June is here. Are you celebrating anything this month..?
