Hand Embroidered Quilt | Finished by ReannaLily Quilts | Jen Eskridge | Customer Quilt

One of my most recent longarm quilting customers brought a hand-embroidered large quilt. You have to see the gorgeous work!

My customer’s mother had stitched 30 identical blocks exquisitely. Each block was a pre-printed panel. I don’t have much experience with embroidery panels, but maybe you’ll recognize it. It was a challenge for me, as I’ve never quilted this style. After asking my longarm quilter friends/mentors, we opted to treat the design as if it were an applique project.

I was NERVOUS! The first pass turned out ok, which eased my mind. I decided to add free-motion feathers around the hand-embroidered elements. Feather’s within the main heart were created on a second pass. The feathers weave around the design, and every-so-often, I’ve added a swirl to keep things fluid and interesting.

The design isn’t symmetrical and neither is the quilting. The piece has plenty of movement.

Although my customer’s mother isn’t here to see the finished quilt, I do hope the family will cherish it. It was absolutely amazing and very outside my “box.”

  1. This is lovely. The care taken in the embroidery and the care taken in your quilting make this a quilt I am sure your customer will treasure for many years to come. Great work!
