Yesterday I finished up the machine quilting on this beautiful Double Snowball Quilt made by Paula. I love the bright fabrics with the touch of black. So crisp!
Paula sent me her quilt and asked me to custom machine quilt it for her, giving me the go-ahead to quilt it as I felt. I decided to really play up the rounded "snowball" look that the quilt has.
So I machine quilted a flower in the center the a couple of circles followed by a smaller border of circles and some echoing.
I machine quilted heavy straight lines in the black and then an orange peel pattern in the corner blocks. I really love how it turned out.
I did change and use a few different thread colors. I don't like my machine quilting to take away too much from the actual quilt top, so sometimes changing thread colors is the best option.
Paula had a solid black backing, and also black batting, great for this quilt, I love how the bright thread colors really pop on the backing.
And just for fun, here's a picture of the quilt top before I began machine quilting, it's always fun to see the transformation before and after the machine quilting.
Thanks for letting me machine quilt this fabulous quilt Paula!
