Quilting Notes/Techniques

Vase, flowers and flourish quilting design by Diane Gaudynski from “October Morning” in Choosing Quilting Designs, Rodale’s Successful Quilting Library, edited by Jane Townswick.

Free motion quilted with Rasant cotton/poly thread. No weight listed, but much thinner than my usual Gutterman 50wt cotton. Feather border hand drawn by me and quilted with Gutterman Sulky 100% cotton 30wt variegated thread.

This time I sprayed the quilt with water to remove the water soluble marker. I didn’t want to soak it again and get the level of shrinkage that I got in “Humble Harvest.” Hopefully no marks will reappear in the future, but will be a good test.
