Beautiful Black BOM

This quilt was pieced by Diane, a member of my guild. She put this quilt together as a BOM and then decided that it was a bit too large for her domestic sewing machine to quilt. It was 93 x 97 when finished...big!

Below are a couple of close-ups that show the quilting. This was a first for me in many ways, the most important being such obvious feathers. I used King Tut Jacob's Coat thread for the multi-colored quilting on the black and in the blocks...those feathers show!! I took a deep breath and went for...Diane was very happy with the result.

I stippled the background with So Fine's black to push it back and highlight the great colors in the blocks.

This is a picture of the middle. I love how it turned out! (Yes, I'm tooting my own horn!)

Thanks for stopping by to take a look.

  1. I have a sampler quilt (Planet Patchwork design) that has a black background and I had it quilted with a varigated colored thread. I really love the way the colors of the thread show up with the matching brights of the blocks. The quilting in your quilt is awesome.
