Back from the quilters

My quilt is back from the quilters and I finished the binding earlier in the week.  The pattern can be found here at Moda Bake Shop and here is post  where I have several pictures of the quilt before it was quilted.

Appliqued flowers

The quilting on the circles:




Entire quilt


I just finished a sample for my friend's shop.  She sold all the kits from one quilt at the first day of Shop Hop, so we made kits from another fabric line.  I came home and made the sample, worked on it from 9 p.m. until midnight and it is done!

  2. This is just incredible. The circular stitching is amazing. I am not a quilter (never say never) but I appreciate all the hard work. Looks lovely.

  3. Wow, that is beautiful! I love the "bloom" down in the corner! I need to quilt more. I don't think I've picked up a block in more than a year!

  5. That's a beautiful quilt. Someone did a magnificient job of quilting it. Back in the 80s, I was quilting BY HAND. It was the thing to do, and machine quilting was considered "crafty". And then, things started changing. Machine quilting, by home sewing machine, came into vogue, with awards given to the best machine quilting. That was followed by the industrial quilting machines. All are beautiful.

  6. Ooh, I love this quilt! I'm just curious as to how much it costs to have someone do the quilting part for you. I may make a lap quilt in the fall and I'd like to go all out and quilt it too, like yours. Is it super expensive?
