We had 3 baltimores close to or have finished appliqueing and now the quilting process begins.
First is Vals quilt.
Alyse brought her stunner in also to show the class. So classy and elegant isant it . Spectacular....
Next is Jan's stunner
Jan is just like Val and Alyse have started this class to practice background fillers for their quilts. Its always a good idea to really have the pattern well and truly sorted out . By that I mean, you have to have a lovely fast rhythm when quilting something as large as these quilts. Also the amount of work appliqueing them means we only want to best machine quilting we can do on them. No use skimping on the quality now. So each month we will go through a few possiblities of fillers and see which pattern looks right and feels the best for the quilt. Then its practicing the pattern of a while so your completely happy with the outcome.. If you race into the quilting with out the practice then you will get better towards the end of the quilt then it will not have the same quality of quilting . Something that will be noticable maybe not to others but to the maker it will. After all these quilts are masterpieces and deserve all the detail we can give.
I am so proud of you all I can believ how different the quilts are and how absolutly sensational they all are. THANK YOU for trusting in me from the bottom of my heart.
Also a very warm welcome back to the return ladies and a big WELCOME to the new ladies. It was a bit daunting walking into a class for the first time ever and seeing this kind of work been shown , but please remember we ALL have to have a start and just enjoy your journey.
Thanks for listening
