Posts Tagged ‘high sheen polyester thread’

I can not tell you how much fun it was working on this quilt! This batik Log Cabin quilt was made by Karla S. and it was perfectly pieced!!! And, it was HUGE!!! 110 X 132 inches!! The blocks were 22 inches square! Did I mention (again) that this quilt was AH. MAZE. ING!!!!

Here is a photo of a small portion of it before it was quilted. Click on any photo for a larger view.

Here is the quilt on my quilting machine with a block partially quilted. I did a diagonal feather design so that the feathers framed the center block. I also changed the color of my thread for EACH section of the block!! That was a minimum of 4 different colors of thread in each block!

There was a light and a dark thread for the log cabin part of the block and then there were at least two color changes for the quilting in the block center! Yes, that was a lot of thread changes, but I feel it was worth it!

I used Madeira high sheen poly thread throughout the quilt. I love the look  of this thread and I used 9 different colors! Here are all the threads I used!

Here is a quilted block. The photo is in a “large format” and if you click on it, you can see all the detail of the quilting.

And finally, a view of only half the finished quilt. The quilt was so large that I had to fold it in half to get it onto the clothesline so I can take some photos!

I used Soft & Bright batting from the Warm Company. I love the little bit of loft in this batting which makes the feathers – and the other quilting – really stand out.

This quilt was an absolute JOY to work on. Thank you Karla for letting me quilt your AH. MAZE. ING quilt!
