I decided to start quilting on the couple of blocks that I managed to put put together before the bobbin case threw a hissy fit on the machine I use for piecing and general sewing.

A new bobbin case has been ordered.

I have a different machine set up for quilting and purchased the  Westalee Coral Fern template  from Punch With Judy (no affiliation or advertising revenue).

I thought the leaf-like pattern suited the Garden Path block design.

It's a bit tricky at first. You  push the pin that is supplied with the template through your block and the template pivots around that point.

Kept stabbing myself on the pin and the template kept popping of it but got into a rhythm eventually.  Also had to make some adjustments to the tension.

You can see the design a little better from the back.

One done. 15 more to go!


  1. By the time you have finished 15 blocks you will be an old hand with that template. I must say the quilting looks fabulous. Such a great pattern. Looking forward to seeing the progress of this quilt.

  2. Beautiful! I love the quilt block and the quilting makes it shine! Yep, by the time you get the others done, you will be an expert!

  3. I like that quilting pattern. And hooray for a finished block! One at a time and they'll be done before you know it.


Thank you for stopping by.
