i get quilts every once in while that, for wahtever reason, i want to keep. joan's quilt is in the top five.
this was a big quilt- 97" square.
she used the cover quilt pattern from the nickel quilt book (i'm feeling lazy today- no quick link)
those are 8" finished blocks and there are 144 of them....the little 4patch squares finish at 1 inch!
i quilted a E2E that i have been toying with, but haven't quilted on a quilt yet....til now. i call it feathered swirl (like i said- i'm being lazy and that's the best i can do. not a very creative name, but hey, it get's the point quickly across)
i chose a dense E2E because the patchwork of the quilt had little pieces.
funny story, once i got the quilt unloaded and trimmed down, i was folding it up and found this sticker. if you look closely you can see i quilted within a hair's width on both sides of it and didn't stitch through it...what's the odds of that?
i'm back to my 'normal' quilting comfort level. me and nemo are one again *smile* check out how pretty the stitches look on the back. perfect tension is a thing of beauty to a LAer....it takes tons of frustration time to hit the sweet spot.
