It’s Quilted!


I just finished quilting this quilt.

I had the perfect threads to quilt it with. It is hard to see the quilting on this picture since the threads blend into the fabrics. In person the quilting is more easily visible.


You can see the quilting clearly in this closeup. It is also obvious how well the thread blends with the colors in the shibori fabric.

It pays to have a collection of thread in different colors, weights and fibers.

And a puzzle!

Oh, I adore it! The quilting is perfect. What a piece! And it is crowned by the small bits of grey matter (don't we have that in our brains?) which interrupt the red lines. This is just -- wow, no more words for it.

I echo Eva's comment...this piece is particulary stunning.....really effective use of gorgeous fabric that can often be difficult to use....well at least I find it a challenge! But not for you Kay!

Love the quilting. I'm amazed at your ability to switch thread colors. I would have used a thread that had the colors blended (like a King Tut). Great job!
thanks for the puzzle

How beautiful! I love the variegated thread you chose. And the blue border looks like water reflecting light! Very striking colors:)
