I have found myself collecting vintage quilt tops with the intention of quilting them. I must have about eight quilt tops and to date had only quilted one of them. As a result, I decided that I really needed to get one quilted to justify adding further quilt tops to my collection.
I quilted the following gorgeous 1930's Le Moyne Star quilt which I purchased in Houston in 2011 for a mere $82USD. The quilt measures about 68 inches square. Here is a section of the quilt before quilting:-
I designed the quilting on my recently purchased Wacom Cintiq Tablet. I love that you can preview quilting designs onto images of the quilt. This was my quilting design - the final quilting only varies slightly from the original design.
I was thrilled with the final result - I love the secondary design which has been created by the quilting lines.
