Here is the Guild President Quilt that I held off showing until it had been presented to the outgoing Guild President tonight. I didn’t want to spoil the surprise.
First, I want to share a picture of the quilt with my working design sketch:
Just ignore that the photo is upside down. LOL Now for the quilting, here is the overall photo:
and a few close ups:
Notice that the bird’s beak is 3D. I did quilt wings and texture on the bird, too.
This quilt was pieced and appliqued by Riet, who was a pleasure to meet and work with. The quilt is for Karen, who is also a longarm machine quilter.
A quick shout out to all my fellow guild members who came up to thank me for quilting the guild Opportunity Quilt, and to say they read my blog. I also had many members who said they had read the newspaper article and to say congrats.
Next month at Guild, I am sitting on a panel to discuss machine quilting. Should be fun, I always like speaking about quilting.
Keep watching, I have some cool projects to share….. Hugs, Carla
