The second customer quilt I worked on recently was this one.
Beautifully sewn by Alison, this quilt came to me already semi - quilted.
It had been half sewn by another long armer but she was completely stumped by the stitching in the square blocks and left them completely unquilted.
In the blocks with the round motifs, she simply stippled the bits she could and left the rest untouched.
The sashings had a dense squiggly line on them. Needless to say Alison was very disappointed to get her quilt back, half done, especially as she wanted to hang it on a wall, making the unquilted parts all saggy and pooky as we say here in Scotland.
This is what I did with it:
How one of the blocks looked before quilting....
This is all continuous line work.
Next onto the the round motifs. I simply echoed the shapes to give some definition .
I would have done something other than stippling but at least the center of the block is anchored now and lies flat.
Again, more continuous line work, echoing inside the white hand stitching.
Slowly, slowly here as I didn't want to sew over the white stitching.
It's always good to take photos as you work, I realised here I had missed a bit! Can you see it?
I did fix it.
This is the back of the quilt.
Alison was over the moon with what I did and is very happy she can finally use her quilt which she spent so much time and effort on..
I thoroughly enjoyed working on it.
Happy quilting til next time.
