Something Quilted


I stitched the rows of strips together that were on the design wall in the previous post. Then yesterday, I sat down and quilted it. This photo is taken before it has been washed. I use wool batting so that even more quilted texture will appear after the washing and drying step. I took this photo without the flash so that you could better see the texture that is already appearing.

  1. Hand or machine quilting?

    Would thicker cotton or poly batt work as well as the wool, do you think?

  10. That texture is great! I am curious about how you sewed those columns together though. They look like they were placed together (side by side) and then run through the machine? Am I seeing that correctly? That seems like an excellent solution to shoving the whole deal through the machine.

  12. I love this quilt for the beautiful colors, design and quilting. So sunny, so calm and interesting with the 3D effect of the quilting. Like going for a walk at the beach, discovering little treasures. Very poetic!!
