Hey quilty friends! I hope your summer is off to a great start! I guess with my kids getting older and more involved in activities around the community I just feel like summer is going to be crazy. But I love it! However, it's really eaten into my blogging time and I just haven't been able to update things here as often as I'd like to. I'm going to try and make an effort at sharing a little more frequently, because I do love this blog, and the community of friends I've made because of it.
I recently custom machine quilted this beautiful Downton Abbey quilt for Carol. I love the quilt. When Carol sent this quilt to me she asked me to hide a little message in it, I'm not sure if I even captured it in the quilting but there is a hidden message quilted into the quilting. :)
If you look closely at the custom machine quilting you can see that I machine quilted two different background fillers, to create two different block patterns. I used swirls and double pebbles, I teach step-by-step how to quilt both of these patterns in my book; Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting.
While I was custom machine quilting this fun quilt I shared a little Facebook Live video. Hope you enjoy!
Thanks for letting me custom machine quilt your beautiful quilt Carol!
