Quilted Headboard Wall Hanging

As I didn’t want to load a time consuming and/or customer quilt onto my longarm before our guild’s quilt show this weekend, I threw on the wall hanging for behind the guest bed in our home.  I loved the fabric and didn’t want to cut it into pieces.  That happens to me sometimes…I don’t want to ruin the design by cutting into it.  Does that ever happen to you?

I wanted to give this fabric some texture, depth by quilting it.


I used a 50 mm lense, the normal lense for my camera, so some of this is blurry, but I wanted to show the texture as much as anything.  Again, threads are not yet buried.




This is one of my favorite stitching designs by Anne Bright: Double Dutch.  My hands have been bothering me lately, so I changed the way I guide the machine, but that hasn’t affected the stitching at all.  And I like the positioning so much better.

Quilted panels are fun to do and fun to use.  They work wonderfully in baby nurseries.  People pull one favorite fabric from the baby’s crib quilt, have it quilted as in these photographs and use it for valances, drapes, slip covers, etc.  The list is endless.  They really tie the nursery together.

Anyway, thought I’d show you before I’m tied up with the quilt show this weekend.  Please join us:QCShow, 2014, flyer_with images-3

Happy quilting.
