As promised, here is Linda’s BOM that she made at a local
Quilt Shop, Country Concessions.
As you can see from the photo, there was alot of fussy cutting and
piecing but Linda handled it all beautifully. Everything was flat and
square. No ripples or extra fabric in the borders at all.
The flower panels are really pretty. I didn’t want to detract from them so
I merely quilted around them. I had to do some type of stitching or these
areas would “puff” up.
In the smaller sections, I used a green polyester thread and followed the
print on the fabric. I think it looks like a wobbly cross hatch.
Originally I had promised to use feathers in the quilting so I had
to make sure I followed through. I quilted feathers on the 4 corners,
around the fan blocks.
In the green borders, I again followed the print of the fabric. I think
that the wobbly cross hatching looks great!
The white backing shows off the quilting. I used a white
polyester thread for certain areas on the top as well as for
the backing too. If I had to choose again, I would use a light
green because there was alot of green on the top.
This shows some of the stitching in the outer brown border. I went
with feathers again because I thought it was appropriate. You really
can’t see the feathers that much on the quilt top because the
outer border is a dark brown. If you want the quilting to be seen,
remember to use a solid color and not a print.
This shows some of that wobbly cross hatching. I love it!
The outer corner and the stitching on it.
This little fabric postcard was made after I had completed
an art quilt by Susan. She made an amazing art quilt of white
birch trees. I loved her art quilt so much that I felt compelled
to make a smaller version of it.
See you next week.
