HOT OFF THE FRAME


I just finished sewing the binding on this quilt! It is called State of Grace by Cozy Quilt Designs using the Shangri La fabric collection by 3 Sisters. I am going to keep this one on the couch in the livingroom. I quilted it with the oak leaves pantograph that came with my frame, and in the borders I used a design off the internet by Simone Struss called Metropolitain (not a typo-she's French!) I am going to load the next quilt on the frame tomorrow!

This close-up shows you the quilting better......I used YLI machine quilting thread in Dusk.
I tossed it into the washer and dryer after the first picture and the close-up shows it in its puckered state-it looks like an instant heirloom. To quote Martha Stewart, "It is a good thing."
