Part 2 – Sewing the Block
This is the final installment of my “Rang de” posting. I have done my Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) on the cushion cover. Can’t say its perfect but its a good effort. See photos below:
After selecting the type of pattern I wanted to FMQ, I sketched it out to see if it will work with my patchwork.
Then I transferred it onto a tracing paper and placed on my patchwork piece to see if the design will work.
Then I prepared my Cushion Cover top for quilting. If you will notice I have three layers (backing material, wading and the patchwork cushion top). The three layers are secured with quilt safety pins to ensure that the layers do not move while I work on my FMQ.
This is the quilted back.
This is the quilted front.
I added a 1/2″ border to finish off my cushion cover of the same background grey fabric and enhanced with some double stitching (using my Husqavarna Designer SE).
I have been thought to label all my quilts/quilt work so that’s what I have done below.
And there you go finished 16×16 cushion cover front.
