I am not into quilting my own quilts. However, it seems I see all sorts of people that do their own on their sewing machines and I figure surely I should be able to do this. Well this past week I figured I was going to try it. I do quilt my own runners, and usually just pin them, but this quilt is 42 by 48. I decided to spray baste it instead and just use an few pins once it was all basted together.
It laid out nice and smooth, and while it took some time I really carefully worked at it and the results looked really good. I might just try bigger ones next time.
I quilted it in straight lines with Isacord thread. It quilted with out a hitch or a wrinkle. I've gotten it bound, and I'm off to my quilting group today, and will finish off the hand work. This will end up on the wall in dining room, hopefully this afternoon.
Pretty excited about this accomplishment so I am linking up with
Good job! Your quilting looks fantastic! Also your quilt itself has such pretty fabrics.ReplyDelete
Fantastic! Aren't you just tickled that you gave quilting a try and it turned out so well? I also use the spray basting method, your quilt with straight lines looks great!ReplyDelete
Pretty! And good job on the quilting - so glad it went well! Thanks for sharing on Midweek MakersReplyDelete
Great work!! I do love quilting my own quilts but the reason is I am not sure of all the work that I'd have to do if I sent my tops out! I figure if I did something wrong I'd be the only one to see it, and then I wouldn't irritate a LAQ if I had wavy borders or funky seams. Funny reason, but it's true! You did beautiful work!ReplyDelete
Your finished quilt looks great! I think straight line quilting is so classic, and really compliments the clean fabrics you chose.ReplyDelete
