Quilt Top Notes/Techniques
Used a kit from the Fat Quarter Shop with “Everything But the Kitchen Sink” 1930’s reproduction fabric. The kit had tons of fabric, probably 30% more than I actually needed, so I got lots of scraps.
Quilted flowers in the four patch blocks with Mettler 12wt variegated thread “Easter Egg” with 90 topstitch needle. Thread left a lot of lint in machine. Quilted leaves in white sashsing, large flower in yellow cornerstones going into yellow diagonal corners on sashing, vines on solid green border, looped “l’s” on white border and flowers in green print border all with Gutterman 100% cotton 50wt thread.
