I love how it turned out!
Yes, once again this will be a difficult quilt for me to part with. Honestly, I wish it was mine. I really really enjoyed every second of quilting this. I was able to try some new quilting designs.
It was just amazing how this quilt came to life with the quilting. My client did such a beautiful job. This was her first embroidery quilt. I misspoke in my previous post when I thought it was her first quilt. Either way, it’s gorgeous!!
The backing fabric is very pretty. I think it would have looked pretty cool with a white muslin too. The quilting would really stand out and give the back a lot of texture. Something to think about if anyone is making this quilt out there.
I had quite a few emails asking about specifics on the quilt, so here goes…
– I used Hobbs wool batting.
– I used So Fine Thread in all the white areas, top and bobbin. Isacord on the rest, top and bobbin.
I ran each thread with it’s own bobbin case. This made things go so much faster because So Fine requires a much looser bobbin tension then Isacord. This way I didn’t have to adjust the tension of the bobbin every time I change thread color. I’m learning to be more efficient with every quilt. 🙂
– I stitched all around the embroidered areas. Sometimes I stitched a little on them when I had to cross over into another area. So Fine is such a fine thread that it’s not noticeable.
I think I covered everything…if not, let me know. 🙂
I’m off to deliver quilts today. I hope everyone has a great
