Quilter's Favorites - 1 -

Quilter's Favorites will start in less than one month so I thought to share with you a quilting tip with every new post until May 10th.

I finished the quilting onto the flower sphere. For an 100'' quilt, the quilting was incredilbly easy. 
Which remind me the thing I think is the most important to a sewing machine used for quilting -  the space under the arm - the bigger the better.

I have an industrial machine I use only for free motion quilting;
the space under the arm is 10.25" (it's huge in comparison with
the 7'' I have on my domestic Pfaff).
The whole quilt is under the arm and there is still space for more.

I started the quilting onto the background - simple, there is enough complexity onto the sphere.

Happy Sewing,

  11. Wow, Greta! That quilt is SO amazing. I really love the neutrals in the border, and the colors in your hexie flowers are beautiful!

    Since it is a group quilt, who, of the 9 of you, gets to keep it? If it would save some arguing between friends, you could just give it to me ;).
