Lady T sent this quilt for LAQ.
I love this quilt.it has so many elements..bargello, applique....and curved piecing.
I had to think about how I was going to quilt this?
SO I decided in all the white space that I would take a ruler and match up lines to the seem lines in the bargello pieced top.....to carry the line all the way down to the end of the quilt. Then I chalked stars..throughout the quilt....so they would stand out...I also wrote the words "Sweet land of Liberty" at the bottom of the white area...I love how striking everything looks. It's a beautiful quilt..something that should be hung on the wall and admired. The piecing and the pattern is just beautiful!
I quilted everything freehand using an INNOVA. I used HObbs polydown batting.
Thanks for looking.
