FMQ Vintage Quilt
I'm done machine quilting my friend's vintage quilt top. I really love how it came out. We had discussed what I was going to do but it's so nice to actually see it all done!
I basically free motion doodled the interior of the quilt. I quilted around the applique. I outlined each border. Each border has it's own quilt pattern. I changed thread for the red border. The cream colored thread was just too much of a contrast. I also had to make sure my back and forth loops kept a good distance away from the edge knowing the binding will be taking up some of that space.
I did lots of clam shells but tried to break it up with feathers, flowers, leaves and spirals. It was fun to just doodle and quilt away! The interior of this quilt was my favorite area to quilt. I had plenty of space and could just have fun with it.
It lays much flatter now although it's not perfect. But it is a vintage quilt top and seems to have it's own personality. It looks so nice! I'm so happy I could quilt this beautiful top and I hope my friend loves it too!
