Machine Quilting

Journey 2 Nebula continues – Rock Candy project 4

Quilted with Superior Threads 40 weight, King Tut #921 Cleopatra variegated thread.

Rock Candy completed with binding. Quilted on my Janome Horizon machine using a walking foot.

Next up on the journey is project 5, Candy Dish.

Instead of piecing a pillow sham, I am doing a table runner. Patterns by Jaybird Quilts.

Pieced, sandwiched and ready to quilt.

I started quilting the center of the quilt for my son & DIL. I didn’t like it so took 3 hours ripping it all out. Not photoed. Back to the drawing board. I played around with some ideas on one corner of the center of the quilt.

I think I’m now happy with this curvy quilt design. And yes, I did misplace some of the curves. They are staying.

I used these two rulers for the curves. Quilted on my Baby Lock Tiara III machine.

    Rock Candy, that is stunning, I have been tempted but getting the patterns here by post is an arduous journey and takes so long. Love your fabrics.

    Hi Sharon! Love, love, LOVE Rock Candy. That binding is just the perfect choice. And a hexagon is so current and on point! I love the hexagon runner, too. Great projects on your plate. And the quilting ripping – UGGG. I so understand why you ripped it out. I love the precision of rulers but I usually just eyeball those arches (and then I’m not happy that they’re not perfect). {{Hugs}} The design looks fab to me. Thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne
