Custom Machine Quilting - Red, White & Black Stars

I recently spent a few days machine quilting this awesome quilt for Miranda. Miranda made this quilt and she is donating it to a charity auction, how awesome and amazing is she?!?!
Miranda sent me this quilt and was so patient waiting for me to get it quilted, she asked me to custom machine quilt it using just one thread color though the whole quilt and gave me the freedom to quilt as I desired. I thought about it for several days or weeks, before I came up with what I thought was the perfect idea for the one.
I machine quilted some feathers in the border, yeah, I love feathers.
Then I machine quilted arcs in all of the black blocks, some point to point quilting in all of the red and then I alternated feathers, straight lines, swirls and pebbles as background fillers. I really love how this quilt turned out.
I had to take a lot of pictures, so here's some eye-candy for you!

I thought that the backing turned out pretty dang gorgeous too!

In my book; Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting I teach how to free-motion quilt most of the techniques shown on this quilt. You can pick up a signed copy here.


  1. Really beautifully quilted! And the quilt itself is really graphic and structured with the simplified colour pallette.

  2. Beautiful quilt, beautiful quilting.

  3. What a beautiful quilt Miranda made and you did an awesome job of quilting it. Amazing

  4. The quilt and quilting are both beautiful.

  5. This quilt is gorgeous and the quilting you added just blew it out of the water. WOW. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I agree, the quilting just made the quilt! I was glad to FINALLY be done with the quilting, but Natalia turned my mediocore quilt into the most amazing quilt I've seen in person. She truly has a gift!

  6. It is incredibly gorgeous! Good work ladies, and what good hearts you have!

  7. Gorgeous quilting for a beautiful quilt! Do you know the name of the pattern?

  8. This is a stunningly beautiful quilt! How can I learn the name of the pattern or find the pattern to the block please?
    Thanks! Andrea
