Quilt pattern: "Flea Market" - it was a series last summer in Quilters Newsletter Magazine.
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 motion.

Okay - 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.
This quilt is extraordinary! Amazing talent in each of you. Probably my most favorite quilt ever! A MASTERPIECE to be cherished!
