Thankful - A Fall Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

With fall knocking on my door I guess it's only appropriate to be machine quilting fall quilts. This adorable quilt was made by the ladies at my local quilt shop, Quilted Works. They have a super cool laser so they are cutting kits for this adorable quilt with the laser. Super cool idea, the applique pieces already have fusible on the backing so once you get the kit you're just about ready to start sewing, saves so much time and headache.

This quilt is an adorable throw-size quilt. I had so much fun custom machine quilting it. As soon as I saw those big solid borders I just knew that I had to quilt some feathers in them. I really love feathers. :)

Here's a bit of a picture over-load. I custom machine quilted this quilt using Quilters Dream Wool batting and So Fine! thread by Superior Threads.

  1. Very Nice! I like the ease of Fusible but not the stitching around all the tiny pieces.

  2. Beautiful! Quilting is wonderful

  3. Just wonderful! Wish I knew the pattern.

  4. What a fun quilt to quilt! Excellent! May I ask if you stitched in the ditch around all the applique pieces before you did the background fill? I often wonder if that is necessary. Thanks!

  5. amazing quilting!! love the kit from quilted works.
