More Wholecloth Quilting


This is a photo of my current personal project. This wholecloth quilt design is from a Dover copywrite free image. I've made some modifications of the design to better fit as a trapunto quilt. I wanted something different from the feather wholecloth quilts I've done in the past. The quilt is rectangular instead of square and should finish around 76x60. I'll work on this after I finish 2 more customer projects.
The quilt on my machine at present is a charity quilt for the Kimberling Area Library. It's a beautiful redwork embroidery quilt. I finished the stabilizing quilting today and hope to finish all the detail quilting in a day or two.
The weather is in the single digits here in Mid-MO and that makes my unfinished basement studio a bit chilly - kind of like trying to quilt in a walk-in refrigerator! I managed to work in 45 minute segments today before having to come upstairs to warm up. Even the space heater wasn't much help. Cold weather makes quilting a bit difficult for me. Luckily the frigid temps aren't supposed to last long.

Susan, I have tagged you for a picture meme. Please come on over and check it out!
I have to say, your quilting is so beautiful, it is such an inspiration to me, I am sure I will never be able to quilt as beautifully as you do. I am ok with that, I just appreciate that you take your time to share your work with us all! Heck even your samples are better than what I do! LOL
