WIP or work in progress. I’m currently in the process of custom quilting a client quilt. It’s a memory/photo quilt for a soon to be high school grad. It’s super cute and fun, but the layout makes for some creative quilting. The client did not want me to stitch on the photos, so I’m stitching around them which is pretty slow going. It took me a while to figure out how I should quilt this top, but I finally did. I kept the top out while I was working on other things hoping that a quilt design would just pop out at me. Well, several did, but none that really spoke to me. Finally, it just happened. It’s the best feeling when it just all of the sudden becomes clear!! I’ll give you a little peak because it’s still a WIP.
The layout of the quilt is 5 blocks across by 7 down. The blocks are 8″ X 10.” This is a long and narrow quilt. The blocks alternate between photos and prints.
I quilted piano keys in the outer border and a pretty swirl feather in the sashing. I’m really loving that design!
I’m using many different threads. Not sure how I feel about varigated threads yet??? Pretty, but more work to tension.
I can’t wait to show the finished quilt!! 🙂
