Learn five machine-quilting methods while tackling a common challenge: how to quilt large projects on your home sewing machine!
What materials did you use?
100% cotton for top, back, and batting. Cotton thread for machine quilting.
This was a huge project that I quilted in one piece on my Bernina. We, and the cats, are pleased with the results :-).
Very nice. Is this a standard bed size? What is the pattern name?
I started with the fabrics from Marcus Fabrics, The Mills Girls 1830-1850 collections, then added others from Windham Mills and others that mixed and matched well. I chose about 8 or 9 block patterns then made each about 3 times using the fabrics in different combinations. I put them on a desing wall to place them with no two together, added sashing and orner stones, quilted, bound it - and voila! In short, there was no particular pattern :-) .
Queen - It ended up being 93"x93". We use it as a bed spread. It's heavy, so we fold it back at night and sleep under our down comforter/duvet.
Very nice job! It looks wonderful, congratulations
It's beautiful. Love the fabric.
