Frosted Hearts quilted!

I promised I'd show you if I managed to get my Frosted Hearts Table Topper quilted, and here it is! I finished up the quilting this afternoon. I finished all the gold coloured quilting last night, but couldn't decide on the quilting for the hearts. Instead I decided to put the rest of the binding in place, and sleep on it.

While I was at the quilt store today I was able to sew down a little of the binding, but not too much. And you'll all be pleased to know I was able to stick to my fabric diet in the presence of all the lovely fabric. It's been reasonably easy over the holidays as I wasn't at the store too often, but being there each week will be a different story.

When I got home I decided that rather than keep trying with the decorative stitches that just weren't working, I'd just do some loopy quilting on the hearts with the crimson red silk thread I bought. It looks just fine, and the top looks much more finished now. I'll stitch down the rest of the binding tonight while watching a movie. I purchased the DVD of The Devil Wears Prada the other day, and though I've already seen it at the cinema, I know I'll enjoy watching it.

Susan asked if I could show a closer picture of the quilting, so I'll do my best. I find it hard to get a good picture, especially when the quilting thread is very close to the colour of the fabric.

To me it's still hard to see the quilting, but maybe it's just my laptop?

Well, that's it from me today. I'll check in again soon!

Such pretty quilting, Tazzie, and I really like the green plaid on point against the background.

You have done beautiful quilting on this one. I love the way you have used coloured thread on the hearts and light thread on the rest.

up close the quilting looks more beautiful then the photo from the other day. Well done. I'll definetly have to have go at it on some scrap piece. Thanks again for the info.

I wanted to go and see The Devil Wears Prada when it was at the cinema but never got around to it. I'll have to find it at the video store.

It looks great!

You're quilting is gorgeous! And you do this on a home machine? You're not using a long arm? I've just ordered a book on machine quilting so I'm hoping to gain some skills, but I didn't know quilting like yours could even be done on a home machine! How do you get the pattern on the cloth? Trace it all by hand?

Samantha said...

beautiful quilting! Good job on the fabric diet :-)

Oh Tazzie, that quilting is just beautiful. ( it showed up well on my screen ) I am only a learner on machine quilting so seeing some done so well inspires me to practise!
