First Snow Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Thelma made this beautiful "First Snow" quilt and sent it to me for some custom machine quilting. Thelma did a fabulous job piecing this quilt and right away I knew that it needed some ruler work to really enhance the piecing. 

I used some of my favorite machine quilting rulers from The Quilted Pineapple along with my 4-N-1 machine quilting ruler and went to work. Most often when I do detailed custom quilting I like to use Quilters Dream Wool batting. I love the extra bit of texture that the wool batting adds to the quilts, but still keeps them very soft.

Thanks for letting me machine quilt this beautiful quilt Thelma!

I used Quilters Dream Batting and MicroQuilter thread by Superior Threads.

My machine quilting is done on a Gammill 22" Long-Arm Quilting Machine.

  2. Fantastic work on both quilt and quilting. I'm challenged to get my rulers out and get practicing again since I have a quilt almost completed that will need ruler work before 5/15 when my grandson graduates.
