I found this eyelet table scarf at a thrift store for only $1! Here she is iwth a third place ribbon at the Big Sky Quilt Retreat and Show in Billings, MT. It was entered in the machine quilting category.
I knew I had to quilt it with lots of feathers.
My process was fairly quick, but I did take the time to mark it first. This is my plexiglass drawing mat that I place over the quilt top and draw on with dry erase markers. I use it to try it various designs.
This is the piece after I’ve made some preliminary markings. I dew a flower, and then traced it with tissue paper. I laid that under the white table scarf and drew out each flower.
Here it is from the back. I faced it, and this was the first time I attempted facing a quilt rather than traditional binding.
And a few close ups. This fun little vintage quilt hung at the UQSM show in Utah earlier this month, but didn’t ribbon. That’s okay, I learned quite a bit from the judge’s comments.
