I am so excited to share this one with you.
I had a lot of fun quilting this one and
learned a lot. I am getting the hang of it.
This one is mine, all mine, to hang in my dining room.
I've had this one in my head for awhile
and finally got to make it.
Wouldn't you know it would rain the day I wanted
to take pictures. I couldn't get the flash turned off and it
wash out the pictures alittle.
Let me give some of the details.
It is 53X53 wallhanging.
The colors are a little brighter in the pictures.
I used W&N cotton batting for the bottom layer and my beloved wool batting that I bought in Paducah for the top layer.
I used silk thread and when I ran out of that, and didn't have time to reorder, I used So Fine.
I wish now I had used the Glide thread that I love.
I divided up the areas and found while quilting that I needed
to divide more of the areas, based on Lisa Calle's concept.
The design in the triangle is one that I bought from Judi at Green Fairy Quilts. All of the other designs are mine made with rulers and some templates I made.
I just realized I didn't take a picture of the borders but you can see a corner in this pictures. A lot of feathers, micro stippling, pebbles and McTavishing. I don't like the thread build up when feathers have a spine, so I quilt mine without one.
I know a lot of pictures but I am very proud of this one.
I love everything about it and it turned out very close to what I had in my head.
Thanks you for visiting.
Have a sewing good weekend.
