Recent Customer Quilt-hand embroidered

Recommended Posts

This is a customer quilt that I recently finished.  Her grandmother had hand-embroidered the blocks and then finished piecing the top but never finished it.  She asked to have it custom quilted and I had a wonderful time quilting it, even though there were "issues" with it.  Like I said to my husband, who knows how well I will be able to make my quilts as I get older so I will just do the best I can to make it beautiful in spite of some imperfections.  The blocks were stamped with the blue lines to show where to quilt around the cross stitched designs.  I used my 6" curved crosshatching ruler (Deloa's) to do the outlining and it worked so wonderful!  I used SoFine in the top and Bottomline in the bobbbin.  Dream Puff batting helped to accent the design.  The white that you will see around the outside edges is the batting.  I really enjoyed working on this quilt.  Thanks for looking.

Beautiful, Marilyn! I don't see any issues with the quilt so you've handled them very nicely. The embroidery is wonderful. What a beautiful treasure.

Marilyn,

 

You did a lovely job of quilting.  I ditto Liam's comment on alternating the quilting in the blocks.  I like the idea of using Deloa's rulers to help with the outlining.

 

You've given the customer a way to keep her grandmother with her always.  Isn't that a great feeling?

The pictures are a perfect size and the quilt is a perfect finish.

What a lovely quilt.  I have quilted a number of these, but they were all set block to block.  I love the sashing between the blocks and your quilting really sets them off!  Beautiful Quiting

What a delightful quilt!  You did a marvelous job on the quilting.  So wonderful to have a piece of family history completed.  Plus I love your picture size.  Some of the smaller pictures are very difficult for me to see the detail.
