Deco The Halls Quilt

kerri4

This is Kerri’s Deco The Halls quilt and the pattern is from Sew Kind of Wonderful using the Quick Curve Ruler.    Kerri made her quilt with solid fabrics that were just asking to be custom quilted.  I started with stitch in the ditch and then feathered in the red design, added swirls in the white background and then did a petal feather motif in the center.  The batting is Dream Blend and I used three colour of So Fine thread to match the fabrics.

When I first looked at Kerri’s quilt I didn’t notice there was a piecing mistake until I took a picture. I like to take a picture of a quilt top when it comes to me for this reason as well as for drawing on if I’m going to custom quilt it.   I contacted her and asked if I could fix it and she was very happy I caught that mistake.  So it is a good idea to always take a picture of your quilt top before sending it off to be quilted or before quilting it yourself as that seems to be the best way to catch any piecing errors.
