more whole cloth quilting

I enjoyed doing the little grape quilt so much I decided to try that method with a different design.  I cut out a snowflake using freezer paper (the piece in the picture was a used piece to ignore the pencil lines) and ironed it onto a piece of muslin.

then traced around the edges using a wash away marking pen

I will sew 2 layers of muslin together following the lines

and then use the yarn and needle to stuff it like I did with the grape quilt

I will post some pictures of progress on the snowflake soon.

I have worked a bit on the whole cloth quilt as well.

Happy Quilting

    Like the tiny stippling you are doing on the whole cloth… ambitious! Can’t wait to see how the snowflakes turn out!

    Very nice. The method that you are using is called “Boutis”. I’m in the process of working on one at the moment. If you are interested you can view it on my page on Quilt with Us. (it’s just the outline markings, have not posted any work in progress yet )
    The extra quilting on your wholecloth quilt really adds to it. Keep up the good work.

      Oops! I just read your post on boutis, so obviously you already knew the method!!!!!

      thanks,,, I am having fun playing with the boutis technique…..but I think I still like the normal whole cloth quilting better, but next quilt I might combine the 2
      looking forward to see your progress…its going to be beautiful
