Lots of XH and Feathers

Recommended Posts

OMG! I felt like I couldn't breathe when I first looked at this quilt...it's so beautiful it took me breath away.

Job well done indeed! It's just stunningly gorgeous..both the quilting and the color palet..but the quilting is what makes it so awesome.

Wow, it's been a while since I've been on here. Thanks for bringing this quilt back up. I haven't seen the pictures since I posted it.

I have done lots of crosshatching before this quilt but I couldn't always get it perfect. So for this quilt I used the Circle Lord templates and the pushbutton element from the front. It was still extremely tedious due to the starts and stops over the embroidery.

So that's how I did it. The wool batting really helped give definition to the quilting. I highly recommend it for heirloom quilts.

Thanks again for the lovely comments!

Tina,these quilts are incredible. The piecing and embroidery is gorgeous--but without your quilting they would just be okay! You really make the sing!

I'm curious -- you say you jump the embroidery and then spend hours clipping threads. Do you backstitch at each stop and start--or knot and bury?

I have a wildflowers quilt to quilt and you have given me some wonderful ideas! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful work! Jane

Hey Tina is that a Judy Nowicky Pattern. It sure looks like one. My Viking 1100 can do that too! Or at least that's what she told me when I bought her book. She is right here in South Bend Indiana. The quilting you did is just awesome. I know she would love to see it. You did a marvoulus job. Maybe some day I'll get mine done. ;)
