The quilting and the binding is finished. This has been such a wonderful journey, so many in the class have created such beautiful quilts! I’ve had a great time, hope you have too!
I used a single layer of Hobbs heirloom poly down batting, Wonderfil Specialty Threads Deco Bob thread, #104 in the needle and bobbin. I use a size 16 longarm needle. The backing fabric is bleached muslin and I quilt on an Innova longarm.
Did you know that if you turn most of the overhead lights off and just leave the machine light on, you get some wonderful shadows that highlight the quilting designs?
The embroidered vintage pieces were easy to quilt, the stars worked well with a large feather wreath design.
I plan to use this piece as a Throw. Here it is keeping me warm on one of our few cold Houston, TX winter evenings.
If you’ve followed me for very long then you’ll know I adore quilting feathers. This quilt is no exception. 🙂
I love the idea of getting vintage linens in the limelight, they are beautiful and I believe that by using these worn, torn and stained pieces it is a wonderful way to honor the hands that made them.
Thanks for following me, for participating in my class and for all your kind words and support! Are you ready for Class 2? It begins March 1st! Stay tuned for information soon!
Remember, you are creating art!
Blessings to all,
