Free Motion Quilting - Applique Quilt

Holy cow! With the sew-along and Thanksgiving last week I almost forgot to blog about this AMAZING quilt! How could I forget about this!
I just have to start by saying Donna is amazing, and has more patience that I could ever imagine! This quilt is big, like almost 100" square, and everything bit of applique is done by hand, did I say AMAZING yet!?!?
I was beyond flattered when Donna asked me to custom machine quilt this beauty for her. We talked quite a bit about how it should be quilted, and finally decided to outline all of the applique and then do a heavy background filler. There is a lot going on with the polkadot background and all of the applique that we decided to keep the background as a secondary pattern.
So, for the background I machine quilted some echoing with a few swirls and randomly some clams. I really love how it turned out, thanks so much Donna for letting me machine quilt this amazing quilt!


  1. Wow, so much work has gone into that quilt, by the top maker and of course you! I would love to watch one of your fabulous video's of you quilting an applique quilt.

  2. What an extraordinary quilt - I am in awe! I love how your subtle quilting sets off the amazing applique work - a perfect collaboration!

  3. Beyond amazing is right. I would never be able to create something like that. Congrats to her on a beautiful quilt.
