BAWARAO4 – Over the Triangles

Borders have been the challenge with BAWARAO over the last couple of weeks. Happily they are now pieced and attached to the centre panel with only a little drama.

I’m now really pleased with how this is looking and am keen to get it quilted so I can finish it of with a barber’s pole red and white stripe binding. What fun!

The tricky part now is now am I going to quilt it? The pattern is so busy that it is tempting to just ‘stitch in the ditch’ (straight stitching hidden in the seams) but I’d like to do something a little more adventurous than that. Hmmm. Might have to pin the layers together and stick on the wall or for a couple of weeks or just get going on the straight stitching and sort it out as I go. Although, there is something about starting the quilting, even if it is only straight stitching that gets my brain in the right gear to figure out what style of quilting I could do.

More pondering and pinning needed before fancy quilting anyway.

Off into the windy spring sunshine.


PS: I’ve also got my sewing projects a bit better organised with a new cabinet – who knew a removable draw could hide a multitude of sins when the visitors pop in 🙂



About bertcollections

I began quilting, with the help of some friends, in 2005, and have been quilting ever since. In that time, I’ve completed several projects in a variety of styles and colour combinations. My approach to quilting generally doesn’t involve using a particular pattern. I tend to have a concept I want to bring to life, or find a fabric on sale somewhere that looks like it could be turned into something fun. As the photos in the 'Introductions' post show, my quilts cross a range of styles, but generally use some strong colours and shapes.

    That is really pretty. Can’t wait to see it quilted.

    This is a really stunning quil! It would look good with straight line quilting, but I also saw a quilt on another blog yesterday with concentric circles quilted all over that might look good on this, too. The Deco5 quilt (grey white and turquoise) in the entry published on Nov. 21st.

    • Thanks for the suggestions. I like the idea of concentric circles. As I made the quilt top I was wondering how to fit roads and roundabouts into the design. I think you are on to a good idea.👍
