I entered my quilt in the AQS show in Lancaster.
Yesterday I learned that it won the award for best use of color.
Such exciting news! All the color in the quilt came from the hand quilting stitches themselves using perle cotton thread.
The overall look of the color in the quilt is somewhat subdued…almost as if I used pastels but the threads are actually quite intense in color.
I finished the spool quilt.
I am really pleased with the finish…..but it was a challenge because of all the off piecing.
I got yet another vintage machine and put it in the new treadle base to test it out today.
It works great! I didn’t take the motor off , I still might want to use that some time and it works in the treadle without taking off the motor.
I am in the process of marking a top for quilting ( my least favorite thing to do) and I will post some about that next time.
