hip to be square


I am slowly quilting my hip to be square with perle cotton no 16 on quilters dream request cotton batting and a voile (extra wide) backing. The thin batting and soft back has a lovely feel to it.




Wish you all a lovely wednesday!

Marit, this is gorgeous!! I'm just getting ready to quilt my granny squares. I was just going to go around the outside of the squares but I really like what you have done. So can I steal your design, please?

This is beautiful! Do you mind telling me how you basted your quilt? Did you use spray or just pins?

I ask because I just pin basted my first quilt (a smallish one) and after only just starting to hand quilt it, I see that I'm going to have to adjust a whole lot of pins to prevent puckers. I'm contemplating taking the pins out and spray basting. Or doing old fashioned needle and thread basting. Any tips are appreciated. Thanks!
