Dense

Thinking about the quilts that I was most drawn to at the exhibition last week, it seemed to be those with very dense machine quilting.  As the June journal challenge is due, I took the machine quilting inspiration in to this month’s piece.  Below is 6 x 12 inches, cotton, two layers of 80:20 wadding,  60 weight thread and a twisted yarn binding.  other inspiration came from the book, Graffiti Quilting, lent by Plum. I like very much the effect of the two layers of wadding, but I think it would be too heavy and cumbersome to manage the quilting in a large quilt.

  2. Oh Avril! More absolutely gorgeous quilting! Wonderful! It's funny, but the photos that you posted with that great quilting on have got me thinking about the quilting areas I've left on my Round Robin.....now that I've got the white thread that I need I hope to produce something imaginative too! Hope that it's even a quarter as lovely as yours!
