WIP Wednesday [lots of quilting]

It's been a week of quilting and basting. I've been working on four different quilts. I've set up my machine for free motion quilting and started off with my Skill Builder blocks. I was quite pleased with the result...

So I moved on to my Neon Stained quilt. I want to try lots of different fmq ideas on this one - some are working out better than others...


The third quilt is all hand quilting - when I get a few moments I'm quilting my Thread Along quilt. I'm using #12 perle cotton in white and mostly doing echo quilting. So far I've done the centre and just about made a start on the main blocks.

And the basting? Hexies. Two weeks after cutting the squares, I've basted 125 1.5" hexagons for a quilt for Mia.

It's amazing how much you can get done in a few snatched minutes here and there :)

Linking up with WIP Wednesday.
