Here is another quilt for my dear friend, Nancy, who lives in Lenoir, North Carolina. First, here is my “before” picture of her pieced and appliqued quilt:
Next, here is the same quilt, now quilted:
and a little closer shot:
Now the back of this quilt:
I am happy with my design. Thus said, this is the second design I did for this quilt. My initial design had some curved cross-hatching and of course, Stitch-in-the-ditch (SID). When my stitch regulator failed on my quilting machine, I needed to change things up just a bit to compensate for the fact I couldn’t slow down my machine for the more detail work.
No worries! The failed part just meant I could upgrade to a better stitch regulator system. The part is here and tomorrow I plan to get it installed…. with a little help from my dealer, Megan Best. Megan has been very helpful, as always.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading about this quilt and seeing the final result. Cheers, Carla
