Thread Talk from my Sewing Machine #25


Yesterday I showed you the quilting on my Bedazzled quilt:


I hope the following schematics will decode the mystery for you, as if there was any mystery to being with, haha!

Ste 1:  You would first start with flower #1


Step2:  Upon completing flower #1, you would do some swirlies.  Look for a good spot to use one of your swirlies to start flower #2, and #3 and so on…  You will notice that I echoed  around the last of #2′s petals to get out of a tight spot to start flower #3.


Step 3:  And you just keep going…


I find that pointy petals in general look more “elegant” than rounded petals in quilting.  I don’t have a preference… but I think the pointy petals worked better for my Bedazzled!  I hope you found this helpful to you.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a super weekend!

  1. Thaks for sharing your design and always love the posts in this series!. In my FM experience, pointy feathers are more forgivng than rounded ones because they don’t look good if not well made.

  2. Thank you so much for breaking down the steps for this quilting design. It really looks like so much work but once explained actually looks doable ( hope I spelt that right). It’s dark, dreary and oh so cold today.

  3. Love your Thread Talks; keep them coming. One should never stop learning and your teaching makes my learning easier. Thank you; thank you!

  4. Thanks for sharing. The quilt and quilting are beautiful. Had to come to your blog to comment and read as the emails are coming to me all blacked out. Don’t know what is up with that. Must be my settings.
