I machine quilted a quilt for a friend of my mother. It is the first time I quilted a big quilt for a non-family member (and it was a bit nerve racking).
It is her first quilt, and she did a wonderful job. It is about 86" x 100".
The majority of the fabric is from Africa, when they lived there in the late 70's. The pattern was perfect to show off the fabric.
It is a wedding present for her son.
I quilted an all over puzzle piece meander (she wanted the simplest quilting).
I quilted a row of stylized gazelle for the border (hard the see - the thread is variegated and blends well with the fabric).
I started the gazelle by tracing curves for the initial layout of the quilting (I made marks on the ice cream pail lid for reference and used a Hera marker).
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!❤
