Sushi quilting

As many of you will have seen on Linda's blog I spent a very happy day quilting my latest sushi quilt on Linda's long arm quilting machine this week.


It took a little while to remember which button to press and to try to move the machine smoothly as it tracked the circles on the template (which was on the table underneath the machine) but I soon got into my stride, with Laura's expert help, and I came home very happy knowing that another quilt was close to completion.


I'm very pleased with the how the circular quilting design contrasts with the straight 'logs' of the design and complements the painted sushi blocks.


I have a little tidying up to do now and then I think I will hand quilt some coloured circles, in wasabi green and pimento red, before adding a binding.
As this is the scene in my back garden five minutes ago I think I will have an enjoyable few hours this afternoon at my sewing machine listening to my latest audio book!


Thank you for reading and talk to you again soon.

  1. I have gadget envy again! But that's not so much a gadget as a monster. Loving the quilt and looking forward to Orientation Part II at the Bramble Patch.

  4. Thanks girls! The circles are certainly neater than if I had quilted them on my machine!

  5. Another admirer here Edwina. There aren't that many quilts I would actually like to live with, but that is certainly one of them.
