I hope that you had a good week. Quilts are awaiting my attention so I managed
to work on Linda’s black and white quilt. Due to all the pattern on the fabric,
I decided to do a pantograph. Spring Garland was the name of the design and I
think that it suits it well. Linda is such a quick piecer and quite accurate as well.
Always a bonus when working with the bigger quilts and the outside borders.
Here is a close up of the quilting on Linda’s quilt.
After Linda’s was completed, I moved onto a quilt that my sister sent me in the mail.
It was a HUGE quilt! Measuring in at 94″ x 110″. Whew! She wanted it by the 25th
of May so I considered stitching a pantograph on it but later I changed my mind. All that hard
work and stitching needed something special on it. Being on a time crunch made me
think of some quick stitching to do in certain areas. I think that the overall quilting looks ok.
What about you?
The name of the quilt is titled “French Twist” so I thought that rope in the outer border was appropriate.
I used chalk to mark in the area so my sister can clean that off later.
In the red outer border, I stitched straight lines, again so that it would be quick and easy to do.
I also had to stitch some feathers in there too. Again, I hurried along so the stitching is
not perfect at all. In the middle of the quilt, I wanted to do some nicer stitching so I opted
for more feathers. I wanted that area to be a little more fancy as she will be looking at it every day.
The center panel also had some dark brown areas so I stitched a motif in there as well.
It was funny because I just bought that stencil at Fabricland this past week. Always fun
to try a new stencil out.
There were 2 smaller borders in this quilt. The first border, I stitched a swirl-my favorite
right now. In the second border, I stitched a swirl but quite different from the first one.
The quilt did get completed on time,as well as the 2 pillow shams included.
She liked it so that is all that matters.
Till next week,
