About Ningiu

Ningiu is the Greenlandic word for grandmother, since I'm part Greenlandic and because handicraft reminds me of my grandmother and mother I find the name appropriate.

Quilting along

I’ve started quilting the ORBC quiltalong quilt,
and it’s slowly coming along, I’m ¼ of the way.

There’s still at least 6 hours quilting left,
and I decided not to work on anything else before this is done.
But with a million or so degrees outside,
leaving us all hot and sweaty,
I don’t think it will be finished before sometimes next week.

I’m quilting in “wonky” straight lines, with random spacing
and in alternating directions.
I think it enhances the pattern in a good way,
and give the quilt a great texture.

I hope you have a great day.

I love how that looks on the back! How do you start and stop each row - backstitch, lots of tiny stitches?

I'm hoping to make this quilt later this year and I'd been struggling with how I wanted to quilt it...until now. Thanks!!

I love the way you have quilted this - thanks for the inspiration - I may use a similar technique on my next quilt!

looks great. know what you mean about quilting in the heat. My last quilt was literally quilted with my shirt off. I was dying but I pushed through to get it done, and then took it to an air conditioned coffee shop to do the handbinding . . it felt so good!
