Back in 2013, some of the members of my quilt group and I shared in a Block of the Month project. There were 6 of us who participated. Each of us shared a pieced block pattern and a machine appliqued block pattern, so a total of 12 blocks. All of the blocks finished at 12". We each chose the fabrics we wanted to work with and the final layout of our quilts. I shared most of the quilt tops with you back in January 2014.
I really wanted to try to do some custom quilting using the computer on the Statler and I thought this would be a great quilt to try it on. So a few weeks ago I did just that.
I chose a design for the borders, one for the sashing, one for corner stones, one for the pieced blocks and a different one for the appliqued blocks. I used a beige thread that blended in very well with the background fabric. In hind sight, I could've used a darker thread so the quilting would show up a little more but as this was my first time doing custom work and getting used to using the machine I wanted it to blend in, just in case. I really love the texture the quilting gave to the quilt, and those little corner stones are my favourite part!!
I had so much fun quilting this! I am really getting the hang of the computerized machine and I am loving the results.
You will notice a new tab at the top of my blog called machine quilting services. I am now offering machine quilting services so if you would like something quilted, I hope you will consider sending your quilt my way. I would love to quilt for you too!
Here is my BOM quilt in its new spot, hanging in my dining room.... just perfect for the fall!
I just love that texture!
