Posts Tagged ‘double cable quilting design’

I have been working on a couple of HUGE quilts lately and I finally have some time to post photos!

The first quilt is 106 x 106 inches and it is gorgeous!! It is the Labyrinth Quilt pattern by Debbie Maddy. My customer did a great job with the piecing.

The photos don’t do justice to the color of the fabrics. In real live the colors are more vibrant.

I quilted the “fabric” and didn’t put any other pattern on it.

There were small circles or dots on the light teal fabric and I quilted pebbles on this fabric! It was slow going because the pebbles were fairly small and dense.  (click on the photo and expand the view to see the pebbles.)

Here is what a section of the pebbles looks like from the back.

It has been a long time since I quilted pebbles like that, and it may be a while before I do them again! But they do look wonderful on this quilt!

Here is a closer view of the center of the quilt.

And here is a view of the back of the center of the quilt. The backing fabric is actually a very rich dark chocolate brown.

The other quilt I have been working on is a Star Sampler quilt. This customer started making the star blocks and then built the quilt around the blocks. She had no specific quilt pattern when she started the piecing. This quilt is 94 x 116 inches!

I have the quilt hanging on my clothesline to take the photos, but I still couldn’t get the whole quilt photographed!

I love the large borders and I quilted feathers in the outer border, but you can’t see them.

In the green border I quilted a 4 inch Double Cable and then feathers (some of which you can see) in the inner borders.

I kept the quilting fairly simple in the blocks. I also hope you can see the feathers in the light background behind the block.

Here is a small portion of the back of the quilt. Here you can see the quilting in the large outer border and the cables.

One more photo of the blocks and hopefully you can see the feather work in the light background areas.

I had WAY too much fun working on both of these quilts and both my customers were THRILLED with the quilting!
