Mixing it Up - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Cheryl made this darling Mixing It Up quilt and sent it to me for some custom machine quilting. I love this quilt and knew that it needed some fun quilting to really make those mixers and spatulas come to life.

In all of the white background I machine quilted Swirly Feathers, I teach this pattern, step-by-step in my book; Next Steps in Machine Quilting. Then in all of the mixers I did some ruler work combined with some free-motion quilting.

In the border I decided that it would be fun to go with the fabric, so I machine quilted cross-hatching, it seems so perfect with this fun quilt.

Pattern for this fun quilt is Mixing it Up by Lori Holt

  1. LOVE that quilt! Pretty quilting too.

  2. Such great blocks, and your quilting is perfection! FYI, I have that issue of Modern Patchwork and this pattern is not in there. Perhaps it's in a different magazine?

  3. So darn cute! I want a pink mixer.....LOVE the quilting~

  4. Lori Holt Patterns are SEW Cute. I bought the Mixer pattern from Fat Quarter Shop as a PDF download. Great quilting. Hope to see you at Market in SLC.
