Today was entirely dedicated to quilting. I have pieced the top during the week and yesterday I could finally prepare the sandwich. All fabrics with pattern are from Kaffe Fassett. I always wanted to make a quilt using his wonderfully designed fabrics.
I decided to finish this quilt with both free-motion and straight line quilting. The hourglass block literally invites you to quilt with the walking foot, this one is in diagonal. I was wondering how I could highlight the BABY part. After looking on the title page of the book Quilting Modern, I decided to try the pebble quilting. It also matches the fabric pattern that I used for the letters BABY. Pebble quilting is a new technique for me and I enjoyed learning something new. Here the result :
And a detail with both quilting techniques :
I have used different colors of quilting threads. Yellow for the top and yellow/orange variegated for the bottom of the letter part. For the hourglass block part I have used red/orange/lilac variegated thread. And for the double folded binding in pink I have taken a matching color.
Please find this quilt listed on my Etsy shop.
Happy quilting, B.
