Hip, hip, hurray, I have finally quilted the grey (Kona Solids in silver) levitating jewel box quilt using Liberty London Tana Lawn fabrics. In this earlier post, you can see the design process and photos of the finished quilt top.
Actually, it was the first jewel box quilt top I have made, but quilted it as the second one.
As both the beige and grey quilts have the same design, I have quilted them both the same. Using my favorite walking foot for the Bernina. I have opted once more to use Aurifil Cotton Mako 40/2, but this time in the shade 2600 dove. I have marked the straight lines on the quilt sandwich with the help of a Hera marker and a long ruler.
The straight line quilting went fairly quickly and so the next day I could finish the quilt by adding the binding. Once more, I used the same fabric for the background and for the binding, Kona Solid in silver. Both quilt bindings for comparison.
I have used the Bomull unbleached calico from IKEA as the backing fabric. The fabric width is exactly what I needed, and the colour is a natural beige.
Quilt size : 56″ x 80″ / Block size : 8″ x 8″
Wadding : Quilters Dream Wool
Quilting thread : Aurifil Cotton Mako 40/2 colour 2600 dove
Enjoy the photos. I think I need not write more details in this post. Happy quilting!
