One for my Mom

I thought I'd start quilting on this little quilt that my Mom pieced....  It was crying out for custom quilting!!!

Ta Done... Double Wedding Ring

I've been slack about post finished quilts...  sorry!  I finished this Double Wedding Ring for one of my customers a few days ago.

I used DecoBob 80wt thread in white.  White thread on white fabric can be really hard to see!!!  Luckily my A1 Elite Platinum machine has a build in black light.  The black light makes the white thread glow!!!  It doesn't work with all threads...  mostly just the polyester ones.

This is without the black light on...

And with the black light... you can see it makes a big difference!

You can see how it glows better in this pic...

My customer wanted feathers...  feathers she got!

And continuous curve in the rings...

On my Machine

I'm working on the lovely Double Wedding Ring for a customer.   She asked for feathers...  and feathers she gets!

I'm using DecoBob 80wt thread by WonderFil.   It shows up nicely with the black light on my A1 Elite Platinum Quilting Machine....  I like to use the black light when quilting white thread on white fabric.   Makes it so much easier to see!

Ta Done

I finished this quilt earlier this week...

I outlined the flowers in the center and quilted pebbles in between them...  Yes, that was a lot of pebbles!

I really like the texture it gave...

And for the borders...  Ribbon candy and feathers!


Little itty bitty feathers...

I'm happy with how this turned out!!! 

Oh...   and last night I was the guest speaker at the Tacoma Modern Quilt Guild...

I think it went well...  they asked me to come back in the spring to teach a class!!!

Swirl Ribbon Candy

I was asked about the Swirl Ribbon Candy in my previous post.   I did a video a few years ago showing how I did it, so I thought I share it again....
