In January we started our Quilt-Along (QAL) with Mandy Monroe. For those of you who have not taken part in a QAL before, here are some general guidelines to help you start up a QAL to make the quilt.

Wow that's lovely Rosemary. Did you hand quilt the hearts? They fit really with the colours.

That is so clever Rosemary, I love the hearts and how you've placed them. Do you draw an outline for the heart before machining? Or is it all by eye?

I drew round a plastic shape.....cut from a plastic milk container using a frixion pen! I think they're great! I bought them from e*at! I usually go over very lightly with the iron but you could always use a hair drier to get rid of the lines! They will come back if you put the quilt in the freezer but I don't plan on doing that anytime soon!!

That's lovely Rosemary. One thing I've been wondering with machine quilting shapes is what do you do with the ends of the threads for the individual hearts? Do you have to pull enough extra thread through between hearts so you can hide the ends like you do in hand quilting? Please forgive the amateur question but I'm yet to finish my first quilt! x

Well done Rosemary. It is lovely. I do hope that the baby is a girl! I am going to have to change my quilting ideas a bit as I was thinking along similar lines to you. 'Great minds and all that'.

That's lovely Rosemary, I hope the baby is a girl too!

I've nearly finished the top now. I thought I'd finish it last week, but half term went too fast, and we were too busy, so I failed. Hopefully I'll finish it tonight, and then In can catch up with the rest of you.
