    Crown Chakra Quilt

    I’m making really good progress on my Crown Chakra Quilt. I’m double checking today, but I’m pretty sure I got all the triangles quilted. The main quilting is ‘stitch-in-the-ditch’, then I went back and densely quilted the smaller triangles to help show that part of the design. There’s also a peek-a-boo triangle at the bottom […]
