Trial Run

A few years ago I made this quilt.

Since then I have had the idea of making a whole cloth quilt of Teddy.      Here is the picture I will base it on.

Before I buy fabric and get going hand quilting I decided to do a test run using the treadle machine.    It will help me to work out the details better than just drawing it.   I am using  fabric I had on hand and wool batting.    It is about 44″x36″  here is the start.

It won’t be anything great but it will help me to design the larger hand quilted version. Here are a few progress pictures (click on pictures to enlarge)

It is also a chance to practice machine quilting.   Which like any other skill takes a lot of practice.

 

I sold some quilts and have added a few more quilts to my sale.  Here are the newly listed quilts.

Happy Quilting

    That is going to be a beautiful quilt. Teddy will love it. And, it’s sure to win first place if you enter it in a competition because you do such awesome work. Looking forward to your Teddy quilt. Give him a cuddle for me.😊

  3. I can see Teddy taking shape!

    That is going to be so cool. Headed back to the quilt show today and will get one last look at your rose quilt. Then helping to take down and pack quilts.
