Patchwork Swoon Quilted!

Image may contain: indoor

I finished quilting Patchwork Swoon! So excited! I didn't think it was coming out that great but it looks so much better off the longarm. I tried all sorts of ruler work and I think it came out fine. I tried an idea from the magazine Machine Quilting Unlimited. Bethanne Nemesh had a nice idea about a border pattern and I did it.

This is just a small picture of the border. The feathers start very small from the middle of the border but get larger as you reach each corner. Then the open area is filled in with loops. I marked everything before I loaded the quilt top. It makes a nice "frame" to the quilt.

Here's the back. Love seeing that texture!

  1. This is very nice! One of my favorite patterns. But you did so much more work with the tiny squares.

    1. Thank you, Tammy! I'll have to admit that quilting those squares was the fastest part of the whole quilting process! I use a circle ruler and I just flip and sew as I go down the rows!

  2. Your quilting adds so much pizzazz to the quilt! I like the textured effect you got in the blue outer blocks.

    1. Thanks, Em! Was hoping it would bring the quilt pattern to life! I feel like the solid almost becomes a print with the added quilting.
