Isn't she a beauty?
My client really gave me a beautiful quilt top.
|Sugar Roses, designed by Susan Guzman for McCall's quilting magazine.|
I just took it off the frame, spritzed any chalk and markings still showing and cleaned up stray threads.
It's all freehand and here are the tools I used:
Yup, this is it....
I before I put the quilt on the frame, I used my big bread bowl to mark an arc on the setting triangles, so all the feather plumes would be the same size.
I also divided the triangle in half so I would have a center registration mark for setting the curve in the identical place in each arc. Then, after looking at my rulers and stencils and not finding exactly what I wanted I used a scrap paper to create the curve I wanted. Marked so I could line it up on each triangle.
Now, all 8 of the feather plumes are matching and all headed clockwise around the quilt center.
My client send a wide backing fabric that is a pretty creamy off-white on white floral print.
I am thrilled with how this turned out and will send it to Arizona to it's owner tomorrow!
