Customers heart........

This is a stunning quilt that Jill has made as gift for a family member!
Measuring 92" x 84" this is a big quilt, it has a 10 " border which you can see is very busy so the quilting I did is lost. I did a paisley and heart vine.
Jill wanted the 'heart' to not get lost so I ditch stitched either side of the dark squares and cross hatched the centre of the heart and did a loose stipple outside the heart to make a background.

If you click on this photo you will see what I have done , also you see the 'peeper' Jill has made to go around the colour wash quilt centre.
In the yellow sashing I quilted a rope using Maderia Polyneon thread, I love the hint of sparkle these threads can give to a quilt with out looking like a hooker running fast with junk jewelry!


  1. Ha Ha I haven't heard THAT saying, sounds like it's from Texas! Reminds me of Bill Clinton's Mother saying he was 'A hard dog to keep on the porch' But yes the polyneon is nice, not too trashy!
