Mayberry Get’s Quilted!

You’ve seen the Quilt, now lets peek at the Quilting. Here are the stats if you’re interested.


Took a while for the quilting but happy, happy, happy. I just never could settle on a treatment for the Sawtooth Border. It’s a bothersome element (for me). Quilted inside the teeth (if that’s the way to properly describe it?) is so common it could make me shy away from a quilt. I discussed my dislike of the common approach to this with my Quilter but I had no idea how she’d work with my issue over that Sawtooth Border! Today I received back something that is quilted just perfect, absolutely perfect. …and I love the thread color. And it doesn’t feel common anymore.

The day is spent on the Inauguration Quilt. Lord let’s pray it doesn’t turn into “The First Hundred Days” Quilt. Although I probably should mention I changed the setting and I’m adding a couple blocks.

    I love that quilt and the quilting design perfectly compliments it. I miss my “Red Monster” – the same quilt, only with an additional border. I do get to visit it on occasion when I see the friend I gifted it to. It was a fun one to make.

    Honey, there is NOTHING common about that quilt. In fact, it is uncommonly gorgeous. And that’s the troof.Word Verification: crefulos which I believe has to do with extreme carefulness and precision on the part of very short people, i.e., “The pygmies were crefulos in their body piercing.”

    Karen, a beautiful red quilt. The quilting is beautful too. You must be very happy with your quilt.

    Love it! Love it! Love it! I think the quilting perfectly compliments it. Good choice. That quilt is moving closer and closer to the top of my “must do” list — like I need yet another unfinished project.
