    I've been working on my own version of a whitework quilt. This has been one of my "dream goals" since I started learning to FMQ about 2 years ago. When I first started, I didn't know if I'd ever get this far..I'm so excited and just HAD to share with all of you!


    My quilting motifs were inspired by Karen McTavish's "Elemental Quilting" book as well as her "Custom Curves" book. This quilt measures about 42 x 54 or so. First I drew out the designs on freezer paper, next I marked all the designs with a water soluble blue marker on the quilt top, then machine FMQ on my Juki TL98 Q (domestic type machine, not a long-arm). I used a thick, pure white poly batting and poly thread with a sheen to it for the quilting.

    I still have to bind and block it, then I'll post some more pics of the completed quilt. :D

    Enjoy!

    Most of the quilt...it looks wavy here because it's laid over a table
