I started quilting this orange and purple batik over the weekend:
This is the Broken Bricks pattern from one of M'Liss Rae Hawley's Fat Quarter Quilts books. This will be a gift to Sameer, since this quilt did not have a home.
Here is a sample of the quilting, though I think that patch of sunlight really interfered with getting a good shot of the quilting:
Hopefully I will finish up the quilting one of these nights, because I have other projects demanding my attention. (I can hear them downstairs right now... "Why aren't you working on me, Mary???")
This is the first queen size quilt that I've finished. I have several more "in process," one of which is being hand quilted, and because I don't have time for it, it's still not done, though nearly there. Anyway, I present to you the wedding quilt I made for H and R. That is DH holding the quilt and I think it also shows off the border pretty well. H said that she thinks it beautiful and that it looks even more gorgeous in person. That's more than enough to make a quilter happy. The pattern is Delectable Mountains and I used the design in an issue of American Patchwork and Quilting (add issue later). And for good measure, another photo of it that I love:
I quilted on my machine, a Bernina 440QE (without the E). I love the BSR (stitch regulator) and am pleased with how (most) of the quilting turned out.
