I’ve almost finished the first border on this quilt. Check out my motif and the stylized straight feathers:
I still need a bit more quilting in my cornerstone design. The gold areas have hieroglyphic quilting in them, quilted after this picture was taken. You can see my chalk markings, I sketch my ideas right on the quilt top.
I’ll keep plugging away on this quilt. It’s slow going because I quilt part time nowadays. Plus I have a lot of straight line and stitch-in-the-ditch quilting to do. This is called “ruler work,” and I like to take my time and do it right.
The motif in the pictures above was hand drawn by me, then made into a stencil so I can replicate it on this quilt. I have developed a new and easy technique for making your own stencils for quilting or other projects. Hmmm… guess I had better add that one to my book, right? LOL!
