Quilting: Done!

I think anyway!  I didn't quilt the main flower stems and I don't think I will as I think it helps them stand out a bit.  Especially since there isn't a lot of contrast between the stems and the background.  What do you think?  Next up....binding.

  1. It is amazing how quilting can cause a 3D effect. I'd love to run my hands over it.

  2. I agree with Eva and with the background flowers being raised I like that the stems are too. Lovely piece and you just amaze me with all that you can do in a few days. I love the cat painting and the face that is darker and more moody is so intriguing.

    How big is your studio???

  4. it's looking pretty great from that angle! Actually quilting each side of the stems might make them pop even more. It's always an experiment. You could try with long stitches, easy to tear out if you don't like it.

  11. Love it just as it is. It will be framed nicely with your binding and stick your label on the back and call it done. Done beautifully.

  12. Impressive trupunto style quilting. I really like the appearance of the popped up circles in the border. They echo the shape of the flower centers. It is a beautiful quilt and larger than I expected from seeing the preliminary photos. I really like how it has come together.

  13. Nice job! Because the flower petals have MQing I'm wondering if the stems look forgotten. imho Can you put a 1/8" outline stitch inside the stem edge? But it may be okay when seen head on. I do like it.

  14. Oh my lord, it's beautiful, Terry. Do you do this on a long arm?? Tell me about your sewing machine, pretty please- and if you're using a table-top model, how in the world do you manage such control on such a large piece??

  17. Wow, this is such a lovely piece. I think it is my favorite of any I have seen you do. It just invites touch, which is one of the real reasons to use fabric in the first place. Terrific job, Terri!
