The quilt pattern and where you can get it.
Did my customer redesign the original pattern for their quilt.
Or did my customer create the quilt pattern.
If the fabric is unusual, I may need to gather that information too.
If it is vintage, how old is it?
and the list goes on....
Today's quilt was inspired by a quilt my customer saw that Tula Pink designed. She made it fit the fabrics she had gathered from over the years.
Tula Pink's quilter uses a double batting. It makes the quilting really stand out. My customer asked me to use a double batting for her quilt. I have tried a couple different combinations and have found that an 80/20 batting on the bottom and a poly on the top works the best.
This is getting really close to my quilting!
I also offer a service to my quilting customers of an all machine embroidery stitched binding. My customer selected a green fabric for the binding.
She stitched (basted) her ric rac on with a lite colored thread, which she will pull out now that the quilting is completed.
The green binding looks great with the green ric rac!
I selected a zig zag embroidery stitching for this quilt, as it echos the ric rac design.
When my customer received her quilt, it is was all complete and ready to use. She will be hanging it on the wall in her quilting room, where she can enjoy it's beauty and memory everyday.
