It was easy to quilt in the ditch around the half square triangles but knowing what to quilt in the border was entirely a different matter!
Then once a decision had been made there was the issue of being able to see the quilting pattern I had drawn. I tried various markers I had and none worked on this dark red :( Might also have something to do with me needing new glasses?
So I quilted it from the back! I had already stitched around the border, so I could easily determine the space I had available. Because the only suitable able stencil was a little too narrow for the border, I filled it out with some echo quilting. Then put folded squares of homespun on two corners for hanging pockets and a third (with folded side stitched down this time) on a third to form the label. Done! The backing was a lovely quilters homespun purchased while I was on camp. I have never used homespun as a backing before, but definitely going to do it for all my wall hangings in the future.
Happy quilting Sue.
