I bought the most wonderful bright and gay backing fabric ---2 1/2 metres from my chimney sweep's wife black background and called champagne party, then found a top that matched ALL colours and odd black squares with party masks ------perfect!!
Hope to make a quillow which have never done before AND altho [don't laugh plse] have made over 20 quilts , self taught, have only ever stitched in the ditch ,will ALWAYS hand quilt but do machine 1st stage of binding .
The pattern of top consists of 2 1/2 inch squares "around the world" 49x72 inches[ of course !] plse will you advise me where you suggest I quilt, had thought staight line [easy!] diagonally but was told by a knowledgeable lady that this could be difficult as the corners of the squares are more bulky. It was suggested that I quilt in a staight line across middle of squares ; any more suggestions please? Thanks
