A Quilting finish......

Before I talk about the quilting, here are the quilt facts:
Quilt made by Beth (she does beautiful applique work!)
Quilt pattern: "Flea Market" - it was a series last summer in Quilters Newsletter Magazine.
Batting used: Quilter's Dream Cotton
Thread used for top: Superior Threads "Antique Silver" Metallic #064
Bobbin thread: Superior Threads "White" So Fine #401

The TOWA gauge for the bobbin thread was set at 220 - I just played with the top thread tension.

Okay - I had so much fun quilting this quilt. I usually have fun - but I have to tell you that I always second guess my quilting until I pull the quilt off the frames - then I just love it.

The borders and center flower points were free motion straight quilting - no rulers, so it may not be perfect, but consistent hopefully.

I love this block!

I absolutely love the sash in this quilt. I mimicked the curve lines, then free motion quilted ovals, then went through each oval with connecting curves. This was really fun.

I love the pattern the quilting in the sash sections created at the points. It is just fun.

Here's the straight stitching and the simple swirl in the borders. The patterns on the fabrics are busy enough in the white/black borders that I decided on a simple quilt stitch because it wouldn't really be seen.

I absolutely love how the corners come together on this one. A new love - straight stitching!

Here's a close up - you can see the sparkle of the metallic silver thread. I just love it!

And - a close up of the sash - love, love love it! Now to the next quilt, also made by Beth! Pictures next week!

Oh - and I will announce the winner of my giveaway sometime soon, but there is still time to enter here.
