I will enter two quilt and this is the first, 81 The Giant Monstrosity. I am working on a pattern for my quilt and will publish it in the near future. I'll be making it available free of charge! I've entered 81 in the category Home Machine Quilted. This photograph shows the quilt but doesn't show the quilting so I'll share some close-ups.
81 The Giant Monstrosity
UPDATE: 81 is one of the Viewer's Choice Finalists! How exciting is that? If you like my quilt you can also vote for it in the Viewer's Choice category as well!
I used a neutral soft grey backing fabric and it shows the quilting beautifully. I used my Juki TL2010Q domestic sewing machine. While it doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles is is a workhorse and the stitch quality is amazing!
This is what it looks like from the front. There was virtually no marking required. I just doodled with my sewing machine and I adore the effect!
In this picture the quilt is folded so you can see the outer border front and back. I love the effect of the straight line quilting in the border!
I blogged about how I quilted the background filler designs and you can read about it here and here.
Until I post again, happy sewing!
