Hey there! Here is the first Custom quilt I have quilts for 2014. Julie sent it to me and wanted it quilted similar to the one in the book (Urban Views by Cherri House). I love how it turned out. At first a was a bit intimidated by all the stop/starts for the echoing squares and rectangles, but I put on some great music and got lost in the zen of quilting such a simple and elegant quilt.
With each advance I turned the top back and clipped as many red bits as I could. The red did seem to fray quite a bit. I hate to be happily quilting along and "Surprise!!!" there is a stray thread that is totally visible through the light fabric.
This was such a fun quilt to quilt and after I got into my zone it seemed to quilt itself.
I am working on a lovely double Dresden Plate right now for Jen. I love how it is coming along. Hopefully I will finish it tomorrow.
Happy quilting folks!
