I slowly quilted the Diamond Tread and I'm happy to claim this quilted. It's not exactly as the original. This is only like half of the quilting that's on the original but sure enough for me. I used masking tape to mark the lines.
Since I'm not very experienced quilter all my quilts are learning lesson to me. These are my first HSTs and there is particular place in the block that created a bulk. I don't know if I iron that in wrong direction or what the problem is. When quilting around it few stitches got long. Not sure what to call that in English. I tried to fix it by going slow. I changed the needle for the strongest but I gave up. It's there and we'll see what's going to happen once I wash it.
It's also my first use of cotton batting as it's supposed to be summer quilt. I read once to wash it first and add the binding afterwards. Have you ever tried that? Should I finish the binding prior the washing? All advices either on the bulk part or binding part are welcomed.
My matchy heart sings to see how well the back side goes with the front, lol.
