getting those flimsy's quilted..............................
You all know the saying: 'It's not a quilt until it's quilted'. This is exactly what Denise thought about this pretty little quilt that had been resting un quilted for over five years.
Measuring only 35" x 41" it will make a sweet wall hanging. Denise fancied the soft less formal look of the whimsical background filler.
From there the feathered border was a natural choice. I had hubby video me yesterday doing this same feathery vine on another customers quilt, I posted the video on my Facebook page and Instagram. Then a picket fence filler to make the little on point squares pop.
Apart from the stitching in the ditch all the quilting was preformed free hand on my Gammill Classic long arm quilting machine.
I did chalk the spine of the feather simply as a guide. Thank you Denise.............
Next is the quilt Sue made for her daughter who still lives back in Sue's home town of Texas.
Sue asked for a geometric quilting design as her daughter likes the more modern look. Sue is hoping this will look nice draped over the back of her daughters white leather sofa, I think it will, how about you, what do you think?
The quilting design is called: 'Square Spirals'. Check out the back................................
Last weekend I had some lovely relaxing time starting a new project..........ahhh, don't you love that feeling? The sun was streaming into my little sewing nook, I had some nice music playing and I just had a fabulous time!
After sewing, pressing and trimming I ended up with 71 blocks, although now that I read the pattern............. I was suppose to have 14 half blocks! LOL..........Leeanne read the pattern!
There was the bin half full of trimmings...........
If you are interested I got this pattern as a free download from Craftsy I first saw the quilt made on The Midnight Quilt Show hosted by the hilarious Angela Walters! Oh do I look forward to her video's! Whilst creating I had a helper.
