My friend Kathy is way ahead of the game by having me finish this beautifully pieced and appliqued wallhanging well before the Christmas rush. It’s a gorgeous quilt and I had so much fun doing the quilting. Since it is a wallhanging, I used 80 %cotton/20% poly batting. It will have a flatter appearance (good for a wallhanging) and it has a little weight. It’s also important that the quilting be evenly distributed throughout the quilt. If I do heavy quilting in one area, I really need to do pretty heavy, close together quilting throughout. Otherwise it could hang a little wonky.
Love the quilting and thread choices!
Thank you!. It was fun to do.
Wow, Pamela, Christmas Door is wonderful. I am not a quilter. But do you do quilts for people??
Barby, I have made a few, mostly simple baby quilts, for customers. But in reality, I am a quilt “finisher”–putting all the layers together and doing decorative quilting on already pieced quilt tops. Putting the quilt top together is rather labor intensive and can take hours and hours (if not days) depending on the complexity. I don’t have the time to do that and am kept quite busy just doing the quilting. But thanks for asking and for commenting on my blog. I admit, I would like the have this Christmas Door quilt myself!
