Terri made this stunning quilt to go on her own bed.I was so excited when she asked me to quilt it.Get ready for photo overload. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of this beauty.
I enjoying working with Terri. She’s so artistic and she gives me free range to stitch as I think suits the quilt. This quilt went backwards and forwards on the frame many times before it was completed. First I stitched close to all the applique with Monopoly. I like to do this as it really makes the applique look sharp and stand out. Then it was onto lots and lots of fill around every stem, leaf and petal. After that I was free to flow in the background. I had the idea that I wanted the flutter of butterflies to be quilted in such a way that their flight path was accentuated. Finally I went back and stitched on top of some of the applique. Not all of it, just the larger pieces that needed to be held down. Phew that was a long process!
Finished, Ta dah!
And just because they are so darn cute, the partridges with their feathers stitched:
Thanks for asking me to quilt your special quilt Terri.
