Whole Cloth Quilt.

Hi Everyone!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I sure did! On Saturday my Sister Natasha taught a class at the Cloth Castle. It was called the Whole Cloth Quilt. It is a class where you get to know your embroidery machine, learn some new techniques and have a quilt that is complete. The cool thing about this class was before we did the machine quilting we had the quilt layered,basted and binding done! I few months ago I bought my first sewing machine. I bought the Husqvarna Topaz 30. I love this machine but had not done much with the embroidery part of the machine. In this class we learn tons!  For the machine quilting designs we used Husqvarna's Quilting Tiles program. You get 20 designs and they are beautiful. When they stitch out it is done with a triple stitch looks great. Until you have to unpick one! The most surprising thing about this quilt is normally I am NOT a girl who likes pink. I do however love the pink in this quilt.

This my Hearse fabric. 

My Machine hard a work!

  2. Im not a pink kinda gal generally either but this quilt is cool! The stitching, at least from here, makes it look 3-dimensional. Nice job!

  3. It looks soooo good, I'm glad you got it finished.

  4. Amazing quilt! The quilting is subtle, yet bold. I'm enjoying your blog while trying to get through a heat wave. Thanks for sharing!
