Happy New Year!
It isn’t quite the new year here yet, about 10 hours to go, but I know that many of my quilting friends from across the world are already in 2015.
I am starting the new year working on the antique applique quilt. (here is the top before any quilting)
Several people have asked what the name of the pattern is. It is named “unknown” . As is true of so many quilts of this age the source of the pattern is not known. The maker may have made it up or adapted it from another quilt, but I find no similar quilts in any of my reference books so it is unknown.
I am adding stuffing (Trapunto) to the feathers today. Here is a picture of the quilting before stuffing.
I think you can see in the picture how much more prominent the stuffed section is.
To see how I do the stuffing see this post https://timquilts.com/2013/03/26/trapunto-video/
Teddy finds the whole thing rather uninteresting
But he has seen me do this before so he decided a nap is better than watching.
But he sometimes naps with one eye open just to be sure he isn’t missing anything.
Here are some more pictures of the quilt (click to enlarge)
Here is another shot of the back…lots of stuffing to go.
Happy New Year and Happy Quilting
