Tessa’s Baby Quilt

My big commissioned quilt is off the quilting frame! Hooray!!! The quilting style was 100% inspired by Angela Walters. I LOVE how it turned out. Of course, I have a few pictures to show you.

Some progress pictures around the lettering:

 

You can still see the frixion pen marks in those close up pictures (above). And I also have pics of the quilting fills:? {{click to enlarge}}

 

I divided the background with irregular wavy lines, then changed up my fills between the wavy lines. I used 9 total free motion quilting? fills on the the quilt + the trapunto name. Hopefully, next week, I’ll have a blog posts showing each fill. It will be sort of a “menu” for myself, and I thought I’d share it with ya.

I also unloaded 11 bobbins of thread on the baby quilt. The quilt is about 50″ x 65″.

Since this quilt was bigger than the original “WEAVER” quilt, I decided to add a 1/4 Dresden circle in the corner. I like it up there. The corner is not lonely anymore.

I backed this quilt with a vintage sheet.

The Dresden is made from a bunch of 2 1/2″ strips. That means, I have lots of 2 1/2″ strips left over that will go straight into the bright scrappy binding this weekend.
