    Hello
    I am sending out this photo of one of 36 blocks showing the wobble stitch used on the light logs. I have a Pfaff Creative Vision and Betty Cotton taught us that it is a very forgiving stitch. Its great for quilting on our blocks. My 36 blocks will now be joined with connectors and then there are two borders too. The tapestry in bloom embroidery was done with bobbin work. That is for those without this facility on their machine, you change your bobbin casing to one which will accommodate wool. Then turn the block over and stitch it out with the right side down! Hope this makes sense. I will do more photos later and hope this helps you Earleen.

    Mmm, that is going to be a stunning quilt.
    I think lining the bobbin work to where you want it would be a challenge. This must be a quilt-as-you-go quilt.

    So the wobble stitch was done SID on the right side of the block? Did you use embroidery thread in the top, or ?

    And then the organic stitching was done with bobbin work, from the wrong side of the block?

    I wonder if my Bernina 1230 has anything similar to the wobble stitch. It really looks fabulous!

    I wish I could see that wobble stitch better, my eyes arent really seeing the pattern. Could you maybe stitch it on a darker fabric?

    I am totally lost on how you've done this. I understand about the bobbin, but is this on an embroidery machine? Or free hand?

    The process however it's done, is absolutely beautiful. Can't wait to see the whole quilt.

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the 'wobble' stitch is a very narrow zigzag - like 1.0 rather than the standard 3.0 width. This produces a stitch that is almost a straight stitch and is most often used when doing a stitch in the ditch.

    I love the sparkle this gives your block as well as the embroidery stitches on the other half of the block. The block would look great with these alone, but your bloom embroidery will truely make this a fantastic heirloom.

    This is absolutely beautiful work. Do I understand that the first stitching on the squares (those that resemble blanket stitch) are done on right side up. Then turn quilt over and change threads to bobbin for the large embroidery.
