Lady of the Loch???

Recommended Posts

When I bought this top I could tell that the piecer had put a lot of thought into the fabrics and the piecing....the fabrics are a wonderful quality.

I have used this straight line quilting in wholecloths before...it's great for pushing back the background so I used that in all the light coloured triangles which let the darker triangles come forward....curved crosshatching and a feathered swirl with a pebbled spine finished each block.

I ghosted the straight line triangles out into the plain border....that left a corner space that was perfect for a feathered swirl....the fabric in the outer border is rather busy so a straight continuous feather finished off the quilting just right!

I used a double batting/wadding of Hobbs 80/20 and Quilters Dream wool, I used Filtec glide in the needle and bobbin.

As usual there are more photos and information on My Blog and in My Flickr Album ..…thanks for looking!
