I spent the day doing what I love to do...
Free Motion.......Machine Quilting
This quilt was created by:
It is one of the many comfort quilts they
create each year and gift
to members of their community.
I have quilted a few of these frayed edge
quilts over the years...
You need to leave the raw edges
of the hearts free,
no stitching over the edges of the heart shapes,
they need to fray up when they are
washed and dried.
This close up view shows the edges
of the heart shapes...
I stitch about a half inch in from the edges.
The background requires very dense quilting...
I stitched tiny loop d loops.
I stitched curls on the dark blue
Not much will show in the yellow floral border
so I stitched random plume shapes.
After 6 hours of quilting...
This Frayed Edge Heart Quilt is ready to
hand off to the next quilter for binding.
Then it will be washed and dried 3 times...
it will fray and shrink up and get oh, so yummy!
