Quilting begun

So, here is what is going into the rest of those blue squares. Each will have a different crest design. Some are fairly easy and a few are quite detailed making the quilting a bit difficult to do


These crests are intersecting cloves, maple leaf, rabbit in the moon, chrysanthemum , cloves of Japanese ginger, and ginkgo leaves. I am still fumbling a bit with stitch length because it is difficult to quilt through the rather thick batting and catch enough of the backing.
Some of the remaining crests are pretty fussy and a few will have to be redrawn.






My hope is to meet the expectations of the group and move the project to a point where we will not face panic at the eleventh hour.

  4. The crests are looking beautiful Julie, the second from the bottom - cloves of Japanese ginger, looks very complicated with its intense stitching.

  5. These are so beautiful Julie! I'm amazed that you can quilt through a thick batting and catch the back at all. That's always my biggest problem even if it's a thin batting. This quilt is simply gorgeous. blessings, marlene

  7. I love all the Sashiko crest designs you have done. I am making a quilt with similar Sashiko designs, although using many fabrics and colors of thread.

    Wonderful! Thanks for posting.
