I finished these quilts this week and they are WAY too cute!!

This quilt is a Batik Irish Chain for a baby that I quilted with feathered heart wreaths and continuous curves. The quilt is 41 x 53 inches.

I love the colors of this quilt! And here is the back of the quilt.

I used Soft & Bright batting, Lavender and Sand Dollar Signature, 100% cotton thread.

When I make feathered heart wreaths, there is a “process” that I use. Here are some photos to show the basics of how I quilt them. Here is the un-quilted space.

Heart-1

Then I mark the spine and the inner and outer boundaries of my feathers. On this quilt I used the Mark-B-Gone, water soluble marker. You can barely see the marker, enlarge the photo to see it better. I mark just enough that I can see the lines.( If you want more information on what I use to make the heart shapes Click Here)

??????????????

Now I quilt the feathered wreath free hand, including the spine line!

Heart-3

And lastly, I removed the marker with a spritz of water. Here is the finished feathered heart wreath.

Heart-4

I quilted the heart wreath with the Lavender thread and the background (behind the heart) I used the Sand Dollar thread to match the fabric. I LOVE the effect! If you look closely in the expanded photo, you can see the continuous curve quilting I did in the squares.

One More Quilt! This quilt has hand embroidered squares and (again) is WAY too cute!! This quilt is 34 x 45 inches.

Here is a close up of some of the blocks. The embroidery was VERY well done!

I used Signature Lavender thread in the printed fabric and quilted feathers in the borders and sashings and added “detail” quilting in each block. I also used Warm & White batting.

Like I said, WAY too cute!!! And here is the back of the quilt. You can really see the quilting!
