Sparkly quilting


I really enjoy creating quiltnig designs, but just marking this quilt took much longer than the piecing! I duplicated the segments of the quilting design and cut and stuck them together, then traced them onto the quilt top using a sewline ceramic pencil and my lightbox.


Once these designs were quilted, I proceeded to spend ages dithering over the background quilting pattern - I don't want it to take away from the fancy designs, but it's hard finding something dense enough to match what I've already done, and blend in with all the different colours.

I think I need to come and see your set up for tracing onto fabric and check out the ceramic pencil. It seems I follow a line a lot easier than freestyling! Great job on the quilting too, it's going to be gorgeous.

oh it's all in the quilting. And the quilting really made this a show stopper! Fantastic quilt. I just love your work. When I grow up I want to be able to quilt like you.
