I am making this quilt for our master bedroom. I started it at a weekend away with my guild in 2008. Our bedroom is sage and brown and I wanted a quilt for the summer.
We painted the ceiling and three of the walls sage and the fourth wall brown. I made the window treatments and bedding.
I made this quilt for the wall over the bed....I blogged about it in an earlier post. It's called Jade Willow.
This quilt is the reason I bought my Bernina Quilting Frame. I was anxious about getting the quilt on it but it all went pretty smoothly. I have struggled a bit with how to use this. My friend and professional quilter Kathy Sperino came over to show me how to load it on the frame, she was a great help!
Here is what it looks like for those of you that have not seen one.
I need to neaten up those cords...
Here is a closeup of my quilting....Pacing myself is still something I am learning....I am doing different stitches in each block with a coordinating thread. I am matching the drapes to the carpet (top thread with bobbin) so the back is a bit funky.
I got one row done (8 blocks) in about 8 hours. I have 6 rows plus borders so I m thinking at least 50 hours to quilt it.....
