Yesterday was machine quilting day and my back will attest to that! It is telling me that I was standing at the machine much too long! Even though it was a dreary, rainy and cold day here in California, it looked like Spring had arrived in my quilting room as soon as Hearfire was loaded on the machine. The quilt is composed of about 5 different lines of Fig Tree and Co. fabric. They mix and match and play so nicely with each other.
The borders were fun to quilt but the individual blocks aren't any fun at all! Stitching in the ditch is my least favorite way to stitch but there was no getting around it for this block design. The Dream Wool batting makes the blocks pop!
