Antique Quilt Top

No automatic alt text available.


I'm quilting this quilt for my good friend. She bought an antique quilt top and I have the honor of quilting it for her! I'm sort of free motion quilting and doodling at the same time.

This is the quilt top when I got it. It's very pretty in a simple way. I want the quilting to embellish it and give it some life. I feel it needs dimension and texture.

I'm almost halfway through the main body of the quilt. I'm going to go back and finish the borders after the main quilt is done.  I'm hoping my friend will love it when I'm done with it!

    1. Thanks, Karin! I thought this would be the best way to go with this quilt. It has stains and a few holes in it. I didn't want to go overboard but still want it to look good.

    1. Thanks so much! She wants to be able to put it on her bed. She just wants to be able to use it. She likes the pictures so far!

    1. Thanks so much! Yes, I got a long arm a few months ago. I bought it used, only way I could afford it! It's fun but definitely still learning! Hope you can get one someday!
