Modern Gray Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Toby made this beautiful modern gray quilt. When Toby sent me this gorgeous quilt for some custom machine quilting I knew that the machine quilting needed to be very crisp and clean. This quilt just screamed straight lines to me.

I chose to machine quilt straight lines in the borders and then outline each block with two straight lines. I alternated designs in every other center block, I love alternating machine quilting designs, I feel like it's a simple way to add a subtle bit of interest to a quilt.

Thanks for letting me custom machine quilt your beautiful quilt Toby! 

I used Quilters Dream Poly Deluxe Batting and So Fine! thread by Superior Threads.

  1. This looks awesome. Love all the straight lines! So much work. I just finished a huge quilt that needed a lot of the same quilting as this one - people don't realize that it's actually way more difficult to stitch in the ditch and get nice, even, straight lines, especially when custom quilting!
