Now for an update on my current project!
I've always admired the beautiful reversible quilts I see in some of the quilt shows and really wanted to do one of my own. I also acquired another beautiful French boutis quilting pattern and thought this would be perfect for this project.
I had a beautiful tablecloth with good quality linen in the middle but it didn't have a pretty edge so I cut off the existing edging and added one from another linen.
The design is very complicated and detailed but you know me, I LOVE that sort of a challenge.
The quilting itself is being done with Superior Threads' Kimono Silk (100 filament) and their 50 wt. Tire silk on both the top and the bottom. I have a beautiful heavy black linen yardage for the backing. Quilters Dream Cotton Select and 1/2 thickness wool is being used for the batting. I am also using the Pilot Frixion pen for the marking.
Just thought I'd give you an idea of just how small the quilting designs are on this piece! Lots and lots of time has already been spent with quilting one little line at a time and burying hundreds of threads but I think it will be well worth it in the end!
Hugs, Cindy :)
