Scolloped edges and chevrons

This gorgeous quilt is another of Lynne Edwards students completing the project with beautiful results..  Judy made this quilt in green, red and grey which is a striking combination.

I quilted the inner section with an allover "santa ana" pantograph design, and custom quilted the inner sashing with a simple straight line, and the outer scolloped edges with custom freehand feathers and chevrons.

I think it has turned out lovely.  All of the feathers are completely freeform, and I had the assistance of my straight rulers to stitch the straight lines.

Judy and I chose a very fine grey thread (bottomline by superior threads) which adds a subtleness to the high contrast of colours in the quilt, whilst blending in and creating stunning texture in the quilt.

Thanks Judy for letting me quilt your quilt. 

As you can see it is a rather large quilt measuring almost 100" square...  I would really love to have a bed at my studio for photographic reasons, but just can't spare the space...  especially as I have some very exciting news to share very soon....
