Update on Quilted, Cutwork Tablecloth

My Own Quilts, Vintage Linen | February 27, 2019 | By

I attended QuiltCon last week, so my quilting was suspended! I’m back on this beautiful, wholecloth quilt. You can see the beginnings on my post from Jan. 28 if you scroll down. It’s a slow process, especially filling all the backgrounds that I decided to fill. Sometimes I wonder WHY I did something, not thinking about how many times I might have to repeat the process. That’s usually when I get bored! I love the challenge of new projects and figuring things out, but once I’ve done that and the first stitching, the rest may be monotonous. Do you feel this way when you create? The morning light across a quilt does get me excited though, so you’ll find me in my studio all day today!! Have a great Wednesday!

      Hi Lesley, thanks! I don’t, so sorry! I’m a chicken to use it, so I usually pick a Glide thread that looks like metallic. It’s my cheater way!

    I love your confession that you get bored! I too find the planning more exciting than the doing, and there’s nearly always a time in any project where I am convinced that it will never turn out, what was I thinking, maybe I should just abandon this now. Usually if I soldier on it comes out okay.

    Just remember, this is why we have recorded book to listen to through the tedious parts!

    Love everything you do and I do have some of my grandmothers things I want to quilt. But a quick question, was watching the blog of you working on this and wondering if you start in the middle of the design 1st? Since this was done in sections. You are truly an inspiration to all of us quilters!!!

      Hi Mary Ann, I did start in the middle. Every piece is different though. Sometimes I go row by row. Thanks for your sweet comments and love that you are inspired!

    Can you use Glide thread on a stationery domestic machine? I love the look of your gold fill and am surprised that it’s not a metallic. Beautiful work BTW, as all of your work is. Inspirational!

      Hi Elizabeth, yes you can! They come in small spools for domestic machines. I use it all the time on my Bernina 440.
