The Slow Kite


Katie Jump Kites

So things have been progressing slowly with quilting KJK. Even straight line quilting takes time and a bit of wrestling with the heaviness of the quilt sandwich. I have done on the verticals once and am now doing the other side of the ditch.

I also decided to do the horizontals just where the back has the pieced strip. I could come to regret this though. The trouble with a quilt back is sandwiching together with accuracy to get the verticals and horizontals to match. I have come close on this one but as you can see, it is out on the horizontals. I may just unpick it all if I am too bothered. I don't know how Rita from Red Pepper Quilts manages to line all her fronts and backs up so perfectly!

Linking up late to WIP Wednesday because Blogger tells me that I have reached my 1GB of free storage wants to charge me to upload more photos. Anyone else had this message appear? I have had to use Flickr to store my photo and then grab the HTML code to post these 3 pics above. I am not sure if this is legit. and I am hoping for a way around it somehow. Let me know if you come across a solution. Thanks, Fiona

  1. It's looking great Fiona! I would say your front and back are amazingly well lined up! Much better than I could do! You know I'm having the same problem with blogger so let me know if you find a solution :)

  2. Looks great Fiona. I had the same problem yesterday. I was making another tab with all my finished quilts so I just went to each relevant blog post and saved the photo location and uploaded them from URL and it worked.

  3. Ooh it's looking lovely so far Fiona!

    I hope you find a solution to the photo/space thing!!

  4. It is looking great!

    All my pictures on my blog are always from flickr. I pay for pro there so I don't have to worry about running out of room.

  5. Beautiful work. I love the Katie quilt. I have a similary one I am working on.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Have a great Thanksgiving,

  6. Looks just fine to me. Pretty. No idea about the space. What size are your pics btw?
