Guild Quilt Sneak Peek

I thought I would share the progress of the Gold Bug Guild Quilt I am working on each day.  I reached the halfway point yesterday, and hope to get further along today.  It is a king-sized opportunity raffle quilt.

First, I wanted to share a picture of the quilt with my proposed quilting design sketch; then follow with two pictures from areas of the quilt.  Here is the proposed quilting design:

Here is the side border #1:

It is similar to the top design I shared before:

Next up is the inner large blank area that I quilted with some lovely undulating feathers:

I hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek into my current project.  I am slowly making progress each day, it is a very large quilt so it does take longer to do.

Regards, Carla

  1. your quilting is absolutely gorgeous! Do you mark your design on the top at all? a few reference points, or is it all completely free, just based on your sketches? I love the plumpness of your feathers and flowers – they stand out gorgeously! It was an incredible top, now its going to be an extraordinary quilt!

    • Most of what you see is freehand, excepting the straight line (which is a ruler), and I draw in just the spine for the feather since it is a double line. The flower you see quilted, started as part of stencil, but now I have memorized the design and can replicate it freehand.

      For marking the double spines, I used a marvy uchida erasable fabric marker.

      Thank you for your lovely complements.

  2. Not fair, not fair!!! Your quilting is absolutely breathtaking. I just love your work. Makes me want to practice more to try and be like you when I grow up 🙂

  3. Carla,

    Simply incredible quilting!! By the way, what is a marvy uchida fabric marker. I have never heard of this type of marker. How is it removed from the quilt? Thanks. Dar

    • Hi Darlene, you can find it at It is erasable 3 ways: 1: apply water, 2, let time go by, and 3) the pen has an erasable tip. It comes in a couple of colors, but I like the purple pen. The pink one doesn’t show up as much.

  4. Amazing work — love the feathers — what a gift you have Carla! Your guild is going to be knocked off their feet when they see the quilting on this one.
