Scottish Mystery Wrap Up

Some of you have been posting your WONDERFUL quilt tops you’ve finished on the “Stitching with Cindy Blackberg” face book group page.  I can’t tell you how pleased I am to see so many ALREADY done!

Don’t forget to make your label for the back with your authentic Scottish plaid tartan.  (I stitched mine on AFTER the quilt was quilted with tiny invisible stitches.)

The label that is sewn on the back of my quilt.

A question came up recently asking if I cut away the extra fabric behind the appliqued thistle block.  Yes, I did because I was hand quilting it.

The back of my thistle block with excess being cut away.

I did love hand quilting my quilt, but don’t think that is the only way to finish your quilt.  There is no shame in handing your finished top to a qualified machine quilter.

Have fun completing your version of the “Wee Scottish Mystery” quilt and check out others on the “Stitching with Cindy Blackberg” face book page group.

Until next time,

Happy Quilting!

 


I'd love to hear from you. . . .
