Jill's Very fun Quilt! Just look at the vibrant colors!
The best choice I had made when quilting this quilt was the thread color. I used a variegated thread that on the spool looked really pink, but just look at it on this quilt! I think every color in this quilt is also in this thread!
I did some fun thin feathering in the boarders.
Circles and feathered hooks in the strips.
Just some fun designs with these pieces.
Here is a close up of one of the corners.
A close up of the quilting done in the black. I split this up to make it into diamonds and triangles and then quilted it really tight. I love the way this looks! I hope Jill likes it too! Stay tuned more to show and tell very soon! Have a great week!
Take a look at all of the gold in here! I just love this! I followed this along in waves with a great thread called Glide. This thread is awesome in that it is super durable but gives the affects of metallic thread.
I outlined the birds in the Glide thread also.
This is a close up of the feathering done in the sewn together strips. Glide thread used here too!
Swirls all over throughout the cloud fabric give really nice texture and the feeling of motion.
I kept up the same idea of the motion throughout the purple background and used a variegated thread. I think this was the right choice as it really reflects the theme going on here. Tell me what you think.
So instead of putting comments with each picture, I'm going to put them right here! I can say that there is no shortage of pictures here and I absolutely love everything about this quilt! I had a lot fun quilting this one using some words, outlining, figure 8's and outline the print with the fun panels as well as free motion quilting fun designs throughout! I do not use templates and did not draw any pictures on this quilt. I did straight lines to keep the words straight and even but that is it! Enjoy your week and if you get a chance to pop over to Piece by Piece see this quilt in person!
