Quilted

Hello Everyone,

Peruvian Pinwheels is quilted! I decided to keep it a little elegant, but still simple.


I wanted the pinwheels to be accentuated and not lost, so I only did feathers on the inner border.


Then I did 1/4 inch echo quilting around the pinwheels and the inner body.


I used matching thread so as not to detract from the pinwheels.


And stitched in the ditch between the inner and out borders, leaving the outer border alone.


This is a photo of the back. I think it looks pretty cool.


And it is perfectly centered. A few of you asked me on the last post how I keep it centered. The answer is that you have to do a lot of careful measuring when piecing the back and then again after it is loaded onto the long arm. With a little planning and measuring it really comes up quite nice.

Now the binding is half sewn down by hand, so hopefully I will have some pictures of that soon for you.

Don't forget... ALL Westminster Fabrics are marked down to $7.15 per yard through March 11. We just received 100+ NEW bolts too!! Just click here to begin shopping.

Until Next Time...

I've been watching this one for quite some time (along with the silk piece) and ohhh it's turned out lovely! The quilting really enhances the piecing. Eye-poppin' beauty.

That's so pretty! I picked up a Lil' Twister template at the quilt show this weekend, after being inspired by your tutorial, and am working on cutting out the pieces. It's not going to look this good when it's done, though!

Oh my gosh, those feathers are perfect! I love everything about that quilt. If anyone is interested I wrote a tutorial for centering a quilt on the longarm. It may not be the exact method that you use, but it will work! http://3creativestudios.com/freeprojects/centered_quilt_back.pdf

Green is the way to go today and is a sign of luck and spring growth. I enjoy reading personal stories about touring and especially the Irish. what a great combination.
