Ebay blocks and an IQ

I”ve been quilting up a storm lately.  Having taken a 2 week break from customer work to quilt my own quilts, I’ve wanted to make the most of it.  And I had three sets of blocks I purchased from ebay earlier this year.  The first one of the sets is now quilted and I LOVE IT!

I used a combination of IQ (robotic) quilting to set in the motifs and freehand for the echo and backfill.  I can’t wait to see this off the machine bound and hanging on the wall.  I’ve got eggshell walls in the house with cathedral ceilings so I can envision this is really going to POP on the wall!!!

And hanging down off the machine, this shows how much the quilting pops out.  I used a rather thick poly batting from Quilters Dream to get the added fullness filled in.

There’s still a bit more fullness in the ebay applique blocks than I’d like to see, but I’m hoping that a combination of steaming and blocking will take care of that.

Next up, a little boy baby quilt…..that one I’ll put a panto on…..I’ll be back later with more pics!
