This is a quilt I made for my Aunt. Her whole house is very victorian and she is a huge fan of anything Gone with the Wind. During a shopping day with Mom at "Quilts and Quilts", we found this amazing panel set for the movie. Mom asked me to do a 50's quilt for my other Aunt and then picked this up for me to do another quilt. Fortunately, I was up for the challenge. Hee! Hee!
I did the same as before and laid out everything on the bed, measured and assembled. I struggled a little bit with this one as I wanted to use metallic gold thread. Turns out that machines don't like 8 year old spools of metallic thread. I went back out and picked up a spool of gold and never had another problem. Thanks to the ladies at Quilts and Quilts, I found that metallic thread has an expiration date. Hee! Hee!
Here are a couple of shots of the free motion quilting. I did this one while I was waiting on machines to make their way across the country, so I used my Singer Heavy Duty 4423 machine with the darning and embroidery foot for this one. If you need a good machine for just sewing and crafting, this one is super strong and really wonderful!
Well, I hope you like this one too! I am very proud of the way it turned out! Thanks for visiting today!
