This is Sherry’s Hand Appliqué quilt that was a Block of the Month project from one of the guilds she attends. She does beautiful hand work and I love the colors she used for this quilt, very pretty! She asked for custom quilting and wanted the appliqué to pop. I rarely use pebbles for a background fill but only because it makes for pretty intense quilting and I usually end up with a carpel tunnel attack! But this one was worth the risk and I’m happy to report no pain after! I decided to add different feather details to each block and then pebble the rest of the background area. Then simple cross hatching in the sashing and feathers in the outer border. Warning…this post has lot of pictures. :)
I used Invisifil for the background quilting and love this thread! It is a 100wt and works great for dense quilting with no thread build up.
The batting is Quilters Dream Blend.
