Still Life Art Quilt Commission – Day 3

I’m continuing to post my progress on a still life commission quilt I’m working on this week, day 1 here, day 2 here.

  1. I fused the quilt top to some batting, then added some backing fabric. The pins are there to help hold the backing in place. This is the first time I really got to look at this thing vertical,as it was too fragile to move to the design wall until this point.
  2. Grabbed some scraps and fused this little piece so I could test out quilting threads.
  3. Smart cookie that I am, I wrote the name of each thread after I quilted the sample – made choosing the final threads easier (as an aside, I spent NO TIME at all putting this practical piece together and yet I see a house – do you?)
  4. Final thread selection!
  5. Quilting commences! I really like the pointy quilting on this orange decanter!
  6. More quilting – I’m SO GLAD I added the fabric on the right decanter in this picture!

  1. Yes, I definitely see a house in #3! With a chimney! It’s looking good. Come down here and teach me how to do that. We have a big conference room with lots of tables where I work. We could sneak in after hours and quilt to our heart’s content. 😎

    You’re almost done. I know you will make the deadline.
