Batting used: Quilter's Dream Cotton
Thread used for top: Superior Threads "Antique Silver" Metallic #064
Bobbin thread: Superior Threads "White" So Fine #401
The TOWA gauge for the bobbin thread was set at 220 - I just played with the top thread tension.
All Free-Hand moay - I had so much fun quilting this quilt. I usually have fun - but I have to tell you that I always second guess my quilting until I pull the quilt off the frames - then I just love it.
The borders and center flower points were free motion straight quilting - no rulers, so it may not be perfect, but consistent hopefully.
I absolutely love the sash in this quilt. I mimicked the curve lines, then free motion quilted ovals, then went through each oval with connecting curves. This was really fun.

More pictures on my blog.
I have the pattern from 2-4... how did you get part 1 !!!!!??
can you direct me to the source??? :shock:
