I've completed up my Half Square Triangle Embroidered Mini Quilt. It finished at 12 1/2 x 13 inches. I'm so happy with these embroidered flower designs which I found in Kazuko Aoki's book, The Embroidered Garden.
I really like the front of this little quilt. As I showed in my last post, some of the threads from the flower embroidery are hidden inside the the quilt. I wanted to use the flower stems as part of this little quilt's quilting. I used two stitches for the stems--the running stitch which has gaps between each stitch and the back stitch. The running stitch looks like quilting stitches on the back of the quilt. The back stitch really doesn't look good.
I'm not unhappy about the back since this is a quilt that will be used as a wall hanging. But if I were doing it again, I'd just use a running stitch for all the flower stems.
