Midweek Makers #40

Welcome to Midweek Makers #40! 



The party was a good one last week, with a tutorial for this fun quilt from Kathi at Run 'n Stitch.

                                     

She says the blocks were a 'mistake block', but they sure made a great quilt! Check out her tutorial to make your own. And thanks Kathi, for a great 'mistake' - be sure to grab a 'Featured' button!

As for me, I'm still working on my seed quilt,




trying to decide if I want to quilt within the seeds. I'm leaning towards no, as this is a wall hanging and won't be subjected to heavy use. Plus, I like the effect of not quilting them. Anyone want to weigh in?

Now on to this week's party! To join the fun,

  1. Thank you for featuring my quilt Susan! Since you asked...I think that not quilting the seeds will make them stand out more. They would be more of a focal point in the quilt. If that is what you want, I say don't quilt them.

  2. In regards to your question of quilting your seeds, it looks from your teaser photo that you have some interesting quilting going on. I agree with Kathi that not quilting the seeds would look great.

    1. Totally right, as I think that quilting the seeds would detract from the other quilting, and the seeds wouldn't be as prominent.

  3. I like how you are quilting the piece. I agree! Not quilting the seeds will enhance them.

    I am so glad I found your blog. Thank you for hosting!

  4. I have to agree with what everyone else has said, don't quilt the seeds. :) Thanks for hosting the linky party! I'll work on adding your button to my linky page.

  5. Pretty quilt! Ooooh, I like what I see so here on your seed quilt! I'll have to go on a little scroll to see more of it! Not sure I'd quilt the seeds, either.
