Custom Machine Quilting Swoon - By Natalia Bonner of Piece N Quilt

This week has been another great week, full of custom machine quilting on this gorgeous quilt!

MaryAnn pieced this beautiful quilt, then sent it to me for some custom machine quilting. She really gave me permission to quilt it as I desired. I have machine quilted several quilts for MaryAnn over the years, and we've often joked that I've never quilted any feathers for her, so my first thought was to quilt feathers. After thinking for a bit, I changed my mind, even though I really, really love feathers I just knew that ruler work would be the perfect fit for this quilt!

I love the stars secondary stars that I was able to create with my machine quilting. I love that they added a cool element of interest to the quilt, yet play on the stars in the center of the blocks. I also added in some curved ruler quilting, I love that this softens of the crisp sharp lines.

I used one layer of Quilters Dream Wool batting, and SoFine! thread.

Thanks for letting me machine quilt your gorgeous quilt MaryAnn!

  1. Stunning, Natalia! You've really got 'vision'.

  2. You made it SING! I need to get me some of those 'magic' Rulers from Linda K Taylor. Fun secondary quilting pattern you stitched on there.

  3. I love the secondary stars and the way the curved quilting extends the shape! Thank you for another amazing job Natalia!

  4. I agree with mascanlon, love the stars and everything you've done. Just beautiful!

  5. OMG, that is just gorgeous! The quilt is already beautiful and your quilting enhances every bit of it, even the negative space!

  6. So stunning...I am speechless! Bravo to both of you!! What is the name of the Block, if I may ask?
