    Whole cloth done!

    After 30 hours of quilting I finished this whole cloth. It was on my quilting bucket list. Hope you like it.

    No it's all machine, the horses and horseshoes are done with brown varigated thread and then plain white for the background.

    Wow, this is amazing. Would you share how you went about creating this? LA or DSM? Did you mark this out in advance or use a product like golden threads? How did you do the border? I can't imagine trying to make that a continous line. Inquiring minds would love to know.

    I have a long arm so I did it on there. I couple years ago I found a lady that marks whole cloth quilts really cheap, i bought 3. So it was all marked for me. The brown is rainbow thread and the white is so fine thread. There was a lot of start and stop for sure.
