Texture

texture


Okay - guilty as charged. I love the texture that quilting creates on quilts. I spend most of my time running my fingers over the quilting (not joking) and end up posting pictures of it when I should be quilting because the kids are asleep!

I just had to share!

Thanks for sharing! Isn't that what quilts are all about - texture?

Fiona said...

Oh, well with a texture as pretty as that it would be hard to resist! I love it when you post quilting pictures - such great eye candy.

Your quilting is perfect! How long does it take you to find the right patterns? Does it "come" when you look at a quilt? Is it there in your hands? I am really impressed of your work. Thank you for sharing!

Beautiful. I can feel it! You do amazing work. Almost makes me want to learn to machine quilt. Maybe someday. ~karen

Gorgeous quilt

Thearica said...

Very pretty! Do you stop and start when you quilt or do you travel through seams to get to your next space?

Barb said...

I love it when you show close ups like that...I can see what you are doing and I too want to feel.

Karen said...

What a beautiful quilt... I think we all like texture... at least, it's what first drew me in... what is the fabric in your quilt... is it a collection, or fabrics you pulled together... quite lovely...

I like the way you quilted this one, it is going with the pattern of the quilt which I always love.

I too am a bit of a nut for the actual quilting in a quilt. This looks just beautiful. :)

Your quilting is always gorgeous and I love when you post it too! The texture always makes a quilt feel so much better!

Rhonda said...

absolutely love this! and I do it too lol.

Since starting to LAQ, I appreciate the actual quilting much more than the quilt top itself now. You quilts are amazing. I'm just now starting to LAQ for friends, and I feel so basic & simple. Hopefully one day I can get my quilts as beautiful as yours! I love that you free-hand them all, I only use a pantograph when someone specifically requests a pattern, and it usually doesn't turn out as well as if I could free hand something similar!

The quilting on this is really nice. I love its simlicity and that you can really see the texture!
