Our patterns include the quilting lines, if your or your quilting service want to duplicate the original you can...even the quirky places where a little improvisation took place.
If you have a beautiful run of feathers going and you bump into the applique - ignore it. Not sure what a judge would say by today's standards...I like it.
I was asked to show pictures of the quilting in Feathered Tulip in Vases.
This quilt was done entirely by hand - every stitch even the seams.
Because fabric widths were narrower years ago, some large blocks in applique quilts were pieced.
This is a needle to give you an idea of how fine the stitches are.
In this photo the cross hatching meets a feather motif.
I think the white on white is beautiful!
There is so much color in the applique the quilting becomes secondary without close examination.
Would you need the quilting perfectly aligned - or do you enjoy a little improvisation now and again?
I hope you are doing a little quilting this weekend!
