Sort of a finish…

Sort of because it is not my finish! I did finish quilting Mama Mim’s quilt last night. These pictures are not the best but I wanted to get it packed up and ready for the post office. So they will have to do.

I quilted a freehand feather swirl all over design. I used Omni thread on top (Maple) and Premosoft in the bobbin. I have heard of a lot of people having trouble with Omni lately. I had to use a size 18 needle and that seemed to eliminate all shredding.

I like the way it shows on the back.

Linking up with Kelly at Quilt Infatuation for NTT and Gemma at Pretty Bobbins for IQuilt.

    Katy, the quilting “made” the quilt. It zoomed from mediocre to magnificent! I want to carefully look at how you do the binding so neatly—mainly the corners is my concern.

    I love everything about this, especially the hands that crafted it! Love you both. ❤

    Freehand?? Are you kidding me? It’s *wonderful*! Just want to let you know I’m going off the radar until the latter part of the month so I won’t see your wonderful updates until I return. See you then.

  4. This is a really lovely quilt – the simple design of the piecing emphasises the gorgeous soft colours, and the quilting gives it the perfect finish.
