It's been a long time since I quilted a king sized quilt . . .
. . . and the first time I backed such a large quilt with Minky!
My client made this "Trip Around the World" for a male and when I met with her I discussed quilting leaves..... I don't know about you, but I find it harder to come up with ideas for masculine quilts!
With a thicker poly batting, it's really a comforter-like quilt so I didn't want the quilting to be very dense.
I divided it up by quilting all four triangle corners with a Terry Twist all the way down to the rust colored blocks that reach out to all 4 centers.
Then I quilted big fat freehand meandering leaves in the diamond center.
At 104 x 111, I really couldn't get a good photo showing the pattern on the back, but you can get a general idea here.
This yummy combo is certainly going to keep someone warm this winter!
Amazing!!! (again!!) Minky/cloud - did you thing of me? Have you every hand quilted Minky? I'm making a baby quilt, and really want to hand quilt it, but just didn't know about the minky!ReplyDelete
Thanks and blessings to you!
Beautiful quilt, Ann...I can't imagine using that much minkie...but I bet its luxurious!! I just moved back here to Meridian a couple of weeks ago...will have to find out where you're located...since we moved, I obviously need to find someone else to quilt my quilts for meReplyDelete
Have a blessed day~
Your quilting really makes this quilt! Great jobReplyDelete
