Hand Quilting with Embroidery Thread and Four Patch Piecing.

Hand quilting progress on Citrus Rose #2.

Close up...

Piecing four patch blocks

I'm ready to start hand quilting the borders of my art quilt, Citrus Rose #2. The turquoise embroidery thread really works with the whole quilt. Progress is being made.

Four Patch blocks are fun to piece, simple but lots of possibilities. I'm making a variety of blocks for a sampler of 'liberated' blocks as in Gwen Marston's book, Liberated Quiltmaking II

Happy Stitching!!


  1. I like the turquoise thread! It really makes the stitches pop.

  2. I agree about the turquoise thread and love the cheerfulness of the colors in the strips!

  3. Yup, the turquoise works for me too. :-) The four patch looks promising.

  4. I was going to comment on the turquoise thread too and I see several people have already beaten me to it! (btw - thank you for your comments on my blog recently - I can't respond so assume you are set to 'no reply'. Just wanted you to know that I appreciate them!)

  5. great pictures Janie...I adore your pin pillow!
