Using a Canvas – Second Part

A few weeks back I shared some pictures of my first attempt at stretching a mini quilt on a canvas. Here is the link to the post in case you missed it. Though I was pretty happy with the result, I still wanted to make the process easier for the corners and fix them better. Il y a quelques semaines, j’ai montré des photos de mon premier essai de montage d’un quilt sur un canevas. Voici le lien sur l’article au cas où vous l’auriez manqué. Bien que j’étais assez contente du résultat, j’avais quand même envie de faciliter la… +

Stretching a quilt on a canvas

Here is the first finished piece of my Improv mini quilt series. I decided to mount all the pieces of this series on frames or canvas as the finishing method.

Hiding quilting thread ends

Earlier this week I had a discussion with an IG friend on how to hide threads when machine quilting. She thinks this topic could interest other people and suggested that I share my method. And this suggestion was very welcome since I haven’t really significant progress to blog about this week 🙂 I only pieced some extra blocks for my improv curves project and I am now joining them together.

How I choose a quilting design

For some projects I settle on the quilting design already during the assembly step. But if I have no particular plan I sketch a few designs before getting into the quilting. I took a few picture to show you my process. Pour certains projets, je suis déjà fixée sur le design du quilting lors de l’étape d’assemblage. Mais si je n’ai pas d’idée particulière, je dessine quelques possibilités avant de me lancer dans le quilting. J’ai pris quelques photos pour vous montrer ma démarche.
