    I love to quilt feathers and grids! For this quilt I used them a lot...
    The quilt is hand quilted and the size is 52" x 74". I use it as a wall hanging in our living room. Hope you like it!

    I think it's beautiful. I would love to try a wholecloth quilt. Did you buy it pre printed or did you do your design. (how did you do it?)
    Well done. :thumbup:

    I did my own design and was very inspired by a picture of a wholecloth in one of my books. For the design I used different precut stencils and the cutting ruler for marking the grids.
    I always start in the middle of the quilt and work towards the open edges.

    I like John James Betweens #11 most, but I've also used Roxanne, Clover, Piecemaker, Richard Hemmings - all size #11 or #12.
    On dark fabrics I use watercolor pencil in a matching color, for light fabrics I do needlemarking with a darning needle.
    My favourite hand quilting thread is YLI, but I also use GŁtermann and King Tut of Superior Threads. The top fabric is a fine woven (with a high thread count like 75x75 threads per inch) solid called "Amish Cotton" - but this brand is not longer available here and I prefer P&B or Moda Bella Solids.
    For the backings I like to use flower prints of P&B, Quilt Gate and others.

    I'm sorry, but I don't know anymore how long I worked on that quilt, I never write it down... but I think about 500-600 hours.
    The quilt is seamed horizontally, the center is a complete width of fabric (44") and two halves of the second width are placed on the top and the botton. I will never do it again like this, it looks better when the seams are vertical (one complete length in the middle).
