Heirloom Quilting





This is a quilt made by my customer, Rosemary. It has been "Heirloom Quilted" which means that very close quilting has been done all over the quilt, in a traditional style. A combination of freehand, stitch-in-the-ditch and computerised Statler patterns have been used. The quilting took me the best part of a week. The calico backgrounds are ideal for this type of quilting. I was pretty happy with the result, and I am sure Rosemary will be too, when she sees it!

The quilting is beautiful, Kathy!

Your art nouveau design is coming on great too! Working on it every day is working for you!
