apples in a basket

Okay, so here's the work I've spent so much space blogging about. The first picture is the full quilt top. I made it in my first quilting class early this year. I've been quilting for 10 years and just took my first class. Go figure.


Anyway, I've always wanted a red and brown quilt and here it is.



This is one of the large triangles on the sides. I've done them all in this same design. It's a basket with leaves and flowers and 5 apples. I'm not sure how it's going to look on the blog, but it's not so great here in this screen. Hope you can see it. I've stretched it as much as possible to make it easier to see. You'll have to excuse the white chalk marks and the tiny pieces of paper that I couldn't see , but the camera certainly picked up. I used both paper and chalk to mark my shapes. The initial shape was on parchment and I sewed through it and then pulled the paper. But, it didn't fill the space, so I added leaves with the chalk and quilted them in.


Here's another with higher resolution.

I found that if you double click the pics, they get bigger and more clear.

Okay, I'm off to finish packing for my sewing date with my mentor. And, I have a couple of hours, so no reason not to get some quilting done before I go. Y'all take care and have a great Saturday. Lane

I zoomed in on the pics and I can see the quilting. It looks great. I can see why it's taking such a long time. That's a lot of quilting. Have fun with your mentor today.

I clicked on your picture to see the quilting, and from what I can tell, it's Awesome! I can only wish to be able to free motion quilt like that.
