Introducing Lily of Rosenberry…

 

For approximately 2 years, I have been working on this applique quilt,

designed by Sue Garman.  And 2 weeks ago, I finished appliquing it.

Now, it is on my frame and being quilted.

Here is some eye candy for you to have a peek at. I have spent about

20 hours on this quilt so far.  All the SID is done, the border is just

about finished and all that is left is the background fill.  I am beginning to

get a bit excited because I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

This is a section of the outside border.  Desley, over at Addicted to

Quilts, gave me  permission to use her quilting design for this quilt.

This grouping of vases really is a good place for feathers.

There are swags on the outside border area and once again, feathers

enhance it nicely.

You can see the whole border area here.  The entire quilt measures 89 X 89, so

it is quite large. It took me 8 hours just to mark it!

Another section of the border area-yes, feathers. I think they make the

border area look great.

The corner area of the border.  The curved cross-hatching breaks up the area

nicely but doesn’t over take it.

I used a polyester cream thread for all the SID work, both on the top and in the bobbin.

For the background fill, I am using a thin cream thread in the top and bobbin as well.

I like a thin thread when doing alot of pebbling  for the background fill.

Because this quilt is nearly completed, I have a new dilemna.  What shall I do next?

I will let you know next week.

What new projects are you beginning?

I am linking up with Freshly Pieced as well.

‘Happy Easter.
