Twisted

March 28th, 2015 I gave you a sneak peek of a super secret project... I'm excited that I can finally show you what I was working on!!!

I received my copy of Mary W. Kerr's new book yesterday...  Twisted, Modern Quilts with a Vintage Twist


The quilt that Mary asked me to quilt for her book is featured on pages 78 through 81...  not only that, it's on the back cover!  The middle quilt is the one I quilted...


Here's the whole quilt after I quilted it...


I love the way it turned out!!!  It is one I wish I could of kept for my self :-)



A peek at the back...

Ta Done

I finished this last week....  absolutely love the way it turned out!!! This quilt was pieced by one of my best customers. I always enjoy working on her quilts. Her colors and fabric choices are wonderful. I believe the pattern is Sidelights...


I did the blocks with my Quilt Gallery computerized system...


A did ruler work with freemotion quilting in the sashing and small gold border...


In the center I outlined the print fabric and add a background fill in the green...


I used the channel locks on the Quilt Gallery to do the bead board quilting in the purple border...


Sometimes I like the back the best.... :-)

Background Fill

The center of this quilt is a section of a beautiful fabric.  Peacocks and dragonflies!

I'm out lining the print and quilting the green with my favorite background fill....  a little bit of and a little bit of that.

On the Machine

I took my quilt off the frame to work on a few customer quilts....  I do believe this is turning out out wonderfully!

I'm using a purple Glide thread in the border and blocks, a copper Glide thread in the small border and sashing, and a green Invisifil in the panel and green sashing.....   Hobbs 80/20 batting.  The quilting is a combination of freehand, rulers and computer work.

Second Guessing

So I'm second guessing everything I'm doing on this project....  I have come to believe that is what keeps me humble.
Now... do I really like those teeny tiny feathers?  Mmmmmmm (the bobbin is for size reference)
