Ebay Quilt is Finito!

I finished binding that dogwood quilt last weekend and was able to shoot some pictures before we left Ohio. Here is a whole quilt shot:

As it turned out, this was a really fun quilt to quilt. I did it all on my Pfaff and I was surprised how quickly I got it done. This shot of the lower half shows the quilting a bit better:

This shot of part of the back shows the quilting the best of all. Sorry about all of the shadows; this quilt is so large that there was only one room with tall enough ceilings to shoot it, and the backside has all the morning light streaming in from the front wondows:

The center is the only part with a “formal feather.” This center wreath was stitched by following the line drawn off a pre-marked stencil that was hanging around from my old hand quilting days:

All the other feathers in the quilt are freeform feathers where all you have to pre-mark is a gentle spine guideline. This shot shows one of the corner hearts in the inner border zone. The background fill design is the irregular swirl from the innies and outies family and I just love the texture it creates:

I’ve got a lot of projects in the wings now that this baby is done, so hopefully, there will be another post later this week, and it will be full of much more color!

    Hi there,
    I so enjoy looking at your site and envy your wonderful machine quilting. But, and its a big BUT, through looking and looking and learning through the looking, I have adapted your machine quilting to hand quilting with the most wonderful results. I now finish off my piecing and applique much quicker so that I can quilt with all the wondeful coloured threads to match my fabric. Many many thanks for the inspiration I have received and the great comments I get from fellow quilters.
