Once I'd finished the bullseye top I was on a roll - in between the housework that is - so I sandwiched and quilted my alphabet 'a la Tonya'
I virtually always machine quilt - as I have arthritis in my fingers I find hand quilting pretty difficult and probably it isn't quick enough for me - you've probably guessed by now I'm a 'let's get on with it' kinda girl :o)
Whenever I do a quilt I tend to start at the edge and work my way into the middle and then come back out again - this reduces the need to finish off ends (anything for an easy life) However this time I got a little braver and started in the middle sometimes - steady now!
As it was an alphabet design I've quilted alphabets on it which you can see if you look closely - don't look that closely though or you'll see just how uneven my stitch length is - I'll never win any prizes with the quilt police :o( - do I care - not much!
I also decided to quilt the line from the children's rhyme "Now I know my ABC, won't you come and play with me?" near the bottom
Then I filled in all the rest of the space just meandering about with curves, curls and zig-zags.
Just ready for a lilac binding and a label to finish the job :o)
Oh and nearly forgot - I'm toying with an idea for another bullseye (why do I always want to call them bulldogs? .......) quilt in dark and light blues. I'm going to have a go using the quadrants a bit like drunkards path blocks in a different arrangement to the circles - stitched three complete squares before bedtime last night (DH was in a much better mood so he kindly brought down all my blue boxes from the loft) and hope to play again this evening - Watch this space :o)
