#2 – Helter Skelter

My second finish for December – HelterSkelter.

I decided on the panto-graph Scrollwork by Urban Elementz which has lots of curves to offset all the harsh angular lines in the quilt top.  This is a free panto-graph and was fun to quilt.

Scrollwork - FREE - Pantograph

The binding seems to take longer than machine quilting the tops.  I know that I could machine stitch the binding and I do have two methods I use upon occasion, however for most of my quilts I like the look of the hand stitched binding.

I have an assembly line going to help me reach my goal of 4 – 6 completed quilts in December.  While the binding is in progress on one quilt, another quilt is on the frame

and the backing & backing is being prepped for the next quilt.

Time to machine quilt the next top.

Have a good weekend,
