This is my last day of machine quilting
on the Chickadee Whole Cloth Quilt...
I am in the third phase of quilting...
The Fill Work
I keep my paper design up on the wall (right)
so that I can view it while I am at the
The center is quilted with triple lines.
I also scribble stitched around chickadee
to enhance the writing.
I also triple line stitched in the curved areas
All I have left to do are the 4 triangle areas...
Here is the BEFORE photo of the triangle...
Here is the AFTER photo of the triangle.
The machine quilting is DONE!
I used blue pen to mark the design lines.
I did not use ruler work.
This is all quilted free hand.
I ran in the house and soaked this in the tub
to remove all the blue pen:
Not a trace of blue ink anywhere...
It is now ready for a binding,
hanging sleeve and label.
This is entered in an exhibit this summer called...
Quilting Makes the Quilt
Many Thanks to Lisa Calle
for her inspiration and instruction
in whole cloth quilting.
The hydrangea in front of the house are
just beginning to bloom...
They really grab your attention!
