2017 Moda BlockHeads BOW – block 29


This weeks question is about – Machine Quilting – do you ever machine-quilt your own quilts?  Basically the answer is NO,  not shouting, but emphatic, they are always sent out for beautiful machine quilting!

That said, I have MQ a handful of small/doll quilts over the years, straight lines only.  I do not like to MQ, it is not enjoyable, but I love to HQ, but I can’t HQ them all.  I’ve been very fortunate to have a couple of long arm quilters who do gorgeous quilting, and make my quilts better, their quilting enhances my quilts with traditional motifs and designs.

This weeks block is by our friend Lisa Bongean.

You can find the block pattern on Lisa’s Blog – https://lisabongean.com/

Once again I’m going to show you my pressing of this block first.  I used the clipping trick and oops I see the top row needs repressed!  Look at the other three sides.  The iron is shut off and I’m home, pretend it is just perfect, OK?

Block 29, pressing

  1. Beautiful, thank you for your tips. I adore your style! Thank you for all you do for this group and all of us following you as a designer, hugs

  2. Love your block. I have a pile of mini quilts that need quilting, I really don’t love machine quilting in the ditch, so haven’t done them yet, but need to do something. Sometimes the smaller ones, need less quilting, but want to try something all over and see if I like it, but am afraid to experiment with it, in case I hate it. Therefore the pile. Need to just do it. Love all your mini quilts and fabric.
