I started some quilting on the Red Single Wedding Ring quilt top. (click here for the pattern rings pattern ) ( pleas note that I made a mistake in the pattern …the center circle should be 10 inches in diameter….please make that adjustment)
Since the vintage fabrics are so varied and many are very thick I can’t do very delicate quilting. I decided to do big stitches on this one using blue thread (Aurifil 12 weight)
I am not being fussy about the quilting…..I feel like this is better suited to a less formal treatment. I am not marking anything, just quilting.
Swirls in the circle.
and simple outlining in the setting pieces.
The backing is simple muslin
Since I think the fabrics are from the 60’s and 70’s I felt like the batting would have been poly…so that is what I am using. It is a rather simple quilting design so this one should go relatively fast. More pictures soon….and maybe a video of big stitches.
Yesterday I posted a song “Seeing Nelly Home” Here is another version by Johnny Cash
