    Fairy Panel quilted with Painters Tape

    Name:  Georgia's Quilt 003.JPG
Views: 3599
Size:  195.7 KBI know I have posted the same quilt before (this is my third) I just love this design.

    This time I quilted the panel with the help of painters tape to aid in keeping the stitching straight. It was very easy to do and I will be using the tape again when I do straight line quiting.

    The quilt is for a friends new grandaughter Georgia, I have ordered another panel from the US as I have enough fabric for the borders and these panels are getting harder to get.

    Carol it's lovely, very pretty colours and the quilting works beautifully. Sometimes if you are on to a 'winner' you just need to keep going with it. Perfect for a little girl.

    Thankyou for your comments earthwalker, I feel with these beautifull panels it is best to keep the quilting as simple as possible so as not to distract from the design of the panel, I did the lines at 30 degrees so as to give a diamond affect, so pleased you liked my efforts.

    Some panels are are so pretty that you want to let them shine. The straight diamond quilting makes it even more beautiful!

    You did such a great job making this panel into a quilt. Your quilting looks great. I always use my center line and keep checking that I am perfectly parallel with my original center line. Really like the diamond shape.

    Beautiful quilt. I haven't ever heard of using painters tape. How do you do that?

    Beautiful quilt. Isn't painter's tape just the best?
