I’ve had my nose to the grind stone doing a rush quilting job. Susan made this quilt from the pattern Simple Gifts by Mary Sorenson. Susan’s request was that I do something whimsical. I used designs from Irena Bluhm’s book Blooming Background Designs.
I was trying to decide whether the quilting was actually “whimsical” or just over the top. Ultimately it didn’t make any difference because I wasn’t tearing the stitching out.
I finished the quilt last night at about 8:30pm and delivered it this morning on my way to school. Apparently the quilting was exactly what Susan envisioned as whimsical, so all is well. Here are a couple pictures.
I used Isacord thread on the top (it quilted up beautifully and I used almost the whole 1000 m cone) and So Fine in the bobbin.
