I finished quilting my Intertwined by the River and just love it! Builder Bob loves it too! I’m not very original with naming my quilts.
I learned something interesting with this quilt, I got lost when I was quilting it. I always start in the middle and work out but somehow with all the strips I would lose my way and end up with a part in between 2 parts that were already quilted…..not good if you don’t want puckers. Thank goodness for a seam ripper!
I ended up doing a medium sized stippling on it and a larger stipple on the borders. I used Bottom Line Oatmeal thread and a 70 needle for the batiks.
My brother wasn’t home so I took my quilt next door and got a picture on his bench……
and on his drive……….
then I used my other brother’s tree for a prop……….
Just after I picked up my quilt another brother came up river with his houseboat heading to the marina you can see in the first photo. Yep….we are just one happy family along the river!
My flowerbed and stone path.
I made the quilt 74 x 84 so it will lay on the top of our king size bed. With a couple of accent pillows it will be beautiful. Right now it has a lump in the upper right top……Simon is underneath.
