I’ve lost count on how many 3-D pinwheel quilts I have quilted in my life. This one is a duplicate of the baby quilt seen here. This quilt will be quilted very simply and similar to the quilt finished last year, however, this one is for a brand new baby boy!
and the overall shot of the quilt on my longarm quilting table:
My friend wanted this quilt to be quilted exactly like the last one. A quick shout out to Carol Kimball, the originator of the barbed wire quilting design seen in the thin brown fabric section. (thanks, Carol!)
I’m almost finished with it. All I need to do is finish the barbed wire section, then quilt in the baby’s name and birthdate. By the way, I think the quilt design is found in one of Mary Ellen Hopkin’s books, but I’m not sure which one.
I love quilting for friends! Next up is one for my dear friend, Lori. Lori, I’ll load it, then I’ll start when I get back from my trip.
Metal Beads: I made these metal beads the other day in class with the etched quilting design copper from this play day at Faith’s. I plan on finishing these with fiber embellishments:
That’s all from my studio! Take care, Carla
