    your beautifully worked wall hanging spurred me to learn something new! i looked up twilling. how very neat! i'd never heard of it, or seen it done. your quilting highlights the embroidery !

    Absolutely WOW WOW WOW! Stunning!!!







    'Twilling is the art of adding embroidery to the surface of a quilt top, creating texture and a tactile embellishment beyond the quilting stitches. Reminiscent of candlewicking, twilling is accomplished with a few easy embroidery stitches and heavy pearl-cotton thread, which produces a pronounced line of stitches. In the past, twilling was done in a white-on-white or tone-on-tone application. Today, however, a great range of color is used in twilling patterns.'

    What a labor of love!! I love the soft tonal quality of this quilt and your twilling is magnificent. Is this your own pattern? Once again, a beautiful piece of art. Thanks for sharing.

    I too didn't know about twilling until I followed the link and watched the video. How long have you been using this technique? Was it hard to figure out how to quilt around it? I would like to hear more of your experience in creating this quilt. I do hope you will enter it in a show. You've done a great job and certainly gave us something to oooh and ahhhh about. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Thanks to everyone for all of you wonderful comments about my Twilling,,, I do plan to enter it in our state fair quilt show... In answer to all the questions on twilling, it is an embroidery stitch, I had not seen it either until I bought the kit. The thread is a varigated pearl cotton.It is not hard to learn or I could not of done it.. It took me a year to complete the twilling, I did not work on it constantly as I have other quilting to do... If you look at the thread someone posted on here a web site that has a video and some call this the palistrina stitch,, I hope I am spelling that right...

    That is absolutely incredible!! It deserves a home with someone who truly appreciates the time and work that went into it. That's an heirloom, that is.

    WOW that is beautiful. I have never heard of twilling. Now I have added it to my bucket list. That is something I will have to learn to do. There is a shop here that teaches smocking. I bet she could teach me to twill. She is always up for something new. Now my brain is spinning with ideas. love it.

    What a Masterpiece! Thanks for sharing, because I've now learned something new and I've been inspired. I have a celtic quilt I've been wanting to do, but didn't want to sew down a bunch of bias tape. This might just be the ticket!

    Thanks again,
    Tammy
