    Here's the one I did yesterday. Some fabrics are very hard to quilt like the red triangles and the fabric in the centre.

    This block didn't speak to me. This morning I said......you have to tell me what you want because soon you will be the only block not quilted. It asked: do I have to? I said: yes!!! So it told me to just do some straight lines as the blocks surrounding it are all with curved lines. So I did, fairly straight that is

    Absolutely Amazing ... what you have done Anael!
    You could have always threatened that one block that it would be left unquilted!


    So why are some of the fabrics harder to quilt?
    I'm guessing ... excessive amounts of sizing, because they have not been washed?
    Or did you mean "hard" as in it not being easy to know "what" to quilt?
    Or am I missing something?

    I did that QuiltE but it was not impressed

    It's hard because of the finish on the fabric, feels like there's a layer of rubbery stuff on top of both fabrics. On top of that the fabric in the centre of the block is very tightly woven.

    So it just had a temper tantrum and told you straight lines to get you to shush up!
    I wondered that about the red ... I had some of it and yes, rubbery and icky is a good description.

    What an amazing accomplishment, from an amazing person. Anael your quilt turned out to be a wonderful tribute to a wonderful mother from a wonderful daughter. I am sure you will treasure it always.

    Finish FWS so I can catch up with you a little

    Having dinner then I have to chat with two special people,

    Anael I am so delighted that you have finished this wonderful tribute to your mom. Have you tested it out yet? You know you need to snuggle under the covers to break it in. And then dream beautiful dreams of Ite.

    Your quilt is an inspiration to us all. Again thank you for taking us on this amazing passage

    So just how dirty could it have gotten while sewing? It certainly wouldn't be the kind of dirt I get into

    I enjoyed every step, working so nice and clean. I'm sure your mother would be very proud of you.
    You have my admiration.
    It is a work top.
    I would like to do something one day and I probably intro another life.
    Have a nice day ! Happy quilting , everyone !
