Amazing Applique - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Last week I spent several days custom machine quilting this gorgeous quilt for Jan! I don't think any amount of pictures could ever do this quilt any justice. This quilt is big, like about 100" square and every single bit of applique is done by hand. It's truly amazing!


 I knew that no matter how much machine quilting I did it needed to be secondary to the applique. Jan worked on this quilt for 18 months her applique is what should be the focal. So, I decided to machine quilt a heavy background filler, outline every single bit of applique and then I quilted feathers around the outside vine. I love how it turned out. 

This quilt is a real treasure that I know Jan will enjoy for years and years to come.
Thanks for letting me quilt for you Jan!

  11. There are no words to describe the beauty of this quilt. It is just flat out amazing and the quilting is like polishing a diamond; the diamond is already gorgeous and with a touch of love it glows even brighter. Sorry for rambling, but this is truly a work of art.
