This is amazing! What does computerised mean? Did the machine do it? The planning and coherence of the design is beautiful and the choice of motifs is inspired. Can't wait to see your next one. Did it take very long from planning to finishing?

Thank you! The machine stitched out the designs, which was computer controlled. The designing took several hours in the software program. I didn't time the stitching, but I would say that it was about 10 hours total over 3 days.

what pattern is this and could it be used to hand quilt as well? I love to hand quilt and have made a sampler about 15 years ago. It was from the Patchwork Place company. Ive inquired at shops in the past for any new ones but no luck thanks

HI. Unfortunately the pattern is a computerized design specifically made for stitching out using a computer controlled robotic system. To my knowledge there's no way to turn it into something that you would be able to hand quilt.

love love love it, long arm or domestic machine? do you have any patterns? beautiful

05/30/2014 Flag

Thank you! I have a longarm machine which is computerized. Unfortunately the patterns used are specifically for a robotics system.

I love this quilt are you going to sell the pattern!:) I'd love to try it! What is dupoini silk is it cotton. Thanks for sharing

Thanks! Dupioni is a type of silk. It's what gives the nice sheen to the quilt. I have a computerized longarm machine, so the patterns used are specifically for a robotics system.
