The feathered border quilting is done with light lavender thread

Then I went in with orange thread and hyper quilted inside the feathers

I learned to hyper-quilt from Patsy Thompson DVD's

Auditioning variegated pink fabric for the binding???

The Bubbles & Blooms quilt is the last large quilt I need to complete for the September exhibit. Tomorrow I will finish up the binding...then move on to a few journal quilts that need some work. I am looking forward to working small for awhile.

  1. I'm really enjoying seeing this quilt come together and get finished. I think I'll try large flowers like that sometime

  2. Your machine quilting skills are beautiful. It looks like you've mastered free-form, free-motion. No small task as your eyes and brain have to move a bit faster than your hands and feet. Great job! Very impressive. I sure understand why you'll appreciate working on something smaller for a change of pace.

    Pink binding is the way to go. Thanks for sharing your work, and flowers, with us.

  3. P.S. What are the quilt dimensions?

  4. Love the quilt and your flower photos are fab!

  5. Hi Stitch-n-quilt,
    I do hope you will try large flowers......just draw out one flower petal as a pattern and you are ready to go.

    Hi Linda,
    Thank you for your kind words.
    The quilt measures 63 x 75 inches

    Hi Vicki,
    Glad you are enjoying the photos!
    I enjoy sharing them with you.
