    Blue Wholecloth

    Here are some pictures of my new wholecloth. The size is 75"x75", it's hand quilted and the patterns are needlemarked.
    As soon as the winter is over I will take some pics of the complete quilt outside!
    Hope you like it!

    It's just gorgeous! I love to hand quilt as well and can certainly appreciate the time and skill this takes. You said the quilt top was "needle marked". I am not familiar with that method of marking. Could you please explain?

    Beautiful, how long does it take you to do someting like this. You are very talented !!!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    I love seeing the things you make and in my dreams I am sewing just like you. I have even tried to needle mark and I can't see the lines. I so admire your talent.

    CindyBee, you have a look in this thread where you can see some pictures of needlemarking:

    It's done with a darning needle, you just "scratch" the patterns in the fabric. It works great for me on solid fabrics.

    Thank you! I needed three months to finish this quilt. I do 6-8 hours of handquilting almost every day...

    Is this quilting pattern your own design or a purchased one? I love your work!

    Your quilt is beautiful. I noticed you are from Schleswig Holstein. My DH's family originally came from there. We searched for them several years ago while in Germany....found lots of wonderful people but no luck finding relatives. Beautiful area!

    The patterns I used are very traditional ones from northern England and found them in books. The spirals are drawn freehand. I marked them by myself, the top was not preprinted.

    Yes, Schleswig-Holstein is indeed very beautiful and I love it. How interesting to hear that your DH's family is from here!
