125th Anniversary Quilt-along
I’m rather new to FMQ although I’ve been quilting for many years. Before I purchased my Q20 sit down longarm a few months ago, I quilted my quilts using the embroidery module on my 830, or I did straight line quilting with a walking foot. This is the first large quilt I did on my Q20. I did a little free motion but the majority of the quilting is ruler work. I really wanted to do feathers in the border area but I’m not quite ready for feathers yet, so ruler work it was. I tried to bring the octagon shape into the borders with my ruler work and with the lace. To add a little sparkle I beaded the lace with silver beads and a few white beads. I binded the quilt with a flange binding, bring back the darker teal fabric from the framework. For the backing fabric I selected a large print with ferns and leaves that matches the colors in the quilt top. I really enjoyed this quilt along. Thank you Amanda for all your hard working putting this together and and thank you Bernina.
