"Purple Splendour," is back from being quilted by Jenny at Stitchworks. I love it ..... it has a nice soft feel as the middle section is only lightly quilted. She has picked out the small square shape as well as the diagonals to follow. Around the borders the pattern is repeated big and small like the width of the borders. This was the first time she had used that pattern and she applied it using a pounce pad and stencil. The colour of the backing has shown up rather dark in this photo - it is actually a soft lime green.It has wool batting.( and was lovely to quilt ) The good news was it didn't cost too much to be quilted ; I was pleasantly surprised. It took Jenny, 8 hours to quilt; so she is fast!
As I have completed the ball I was making I can move straight on to cutting some very very long bindings to go around the 95" sides. Luckily I quite like hand sewing.( All in all I am very happy with my first professionally quilted quilt! )
Molly you did make me laugh - I am only too aware of how carefully one has to word things when using the words balls and felt .(otherwise one can have some unwanted guests looking at one's blog after searching for certain words or phrases.)
Happy stitching everyone.
