Bits & Pieces

Quilting for Cena

Published on 03/13/16

I love doing quilting for Cena. She sends me pictures of the quilt in progress that helps get my brain in gear so when the quilt arrives I have a basic plan. We also met while she was working out some details in the piecing to talk about the idea behind the quilt. New attached image Once again it is a white quilt – which I LOVE. I decided to use only white thread – I actually used 60 weight thread in the top and bobbin – this makes s huge difference with backtracking and thread build-up. New attached image Te quilt was made for a color challenge and each of the pieced fabrics were to be in the quilt. I really like the whimsical feeling that the rick-rack and circles adds to the quilt. New attached image New attached image This is a view from the long-arm.

Most of the fabrics in the quilt were not pre-washed, so there was some color bleeding – especially the reds. To help with this I recommend washing the quilt with a SMALL amount of blue dawn.
