I am so very proud of them all, loving seeing the quilts come to life all stunningly different and giving them lots of joy. And to me thats what quilting is all about making yourself happy, spending time alone OR with a friend or two stitching something beautiful to admire for years to come.
Alysia is making a charcoal background with all neutral fabrics.... STUNNING..So beautifully blanket stitched with one neutral thread,,, smart too ( such a time saver instead of changing thread colours )
And me I have been quilting some of my Nancy Crow quilts from January.I'm really happy with this texture I have achieved. Ive used wool/ cotton blend wadding , ditched the piecing and then with a length of 4.5 on my710 Bernina , quilted lines all vertical down the quilt in black and red. Then got the triple stitch and quilted just as before with a black or red 5o weight cotton thread ( nothing fancy) and got great heavy texture. It sort of looks hand quilted ( if you squint) well as close to hand quilted as I'm ever going to get ( god didn't give me those skills)
My once a month classes I am LOVING so nice to have regular students and see their progress, very rewarding for little old me .......
Now off to AQC today....
See you ....
Thank you as usual for great inspiration Deb
