It's DONE!

First off...I want to give a BIG "thank you" for all your suggestions and comments to finish my redwork quilt, it was very much appreciated and helped me more than you'll know. The timing couldn't have been better, Lynn pointed me to this blog who had recently posted about quilting through stitchery and how anitque quilts have been done in the simple cross hatch quilting. A few comments mentioned invisible thread (invisible thread and I don't get along) which gave me the idea of using InvisaFil thread by WonderFil. The InvisaFil is very fine, almost like silk thread which is what I needed to have the thread blend with both the white background and the red. I used a light beige InvisaFil on top and a cotton thread in the bobbin. Sorry about the blurry picture, I must have gotten a little too close for the camera to handle, you get the idea. It's so great to have a whole world of quilting bloggers to ask for help, thanks again to all of you!!
I hope your weekend was spent with needle and thread.

I didn't know about the thread, thank you for sharing, I have small quilts to do and it may work for them. I love the way it looks on your quilt. Your quilt turned out wonderful.

It's wonderful!!! The cross-hatching through the redwork looks fantastic. I'm not a fan of using invisible thread - but I think I'm going to try this one.

It looks great! I might do that on my Polka Dot Girls quilt. I'm getting ready to sandwich it and then quilt it.

Wendy - it's perfect! Great job quilting with that thread and I don't think it takes away from the Redwork at all!
Hint: it you want better close-ups, turn the macro on in your digital camera - it's the little "flower" button...I leave mine on all the time!
Cheers!

Sometimes simple is wonderful and it is on that sweet little quilt. Thanks for mentioning that thread. I'm going to have to check it out.

Judy S. said...

I love the way this turned out, Wendy. There's a UFO redwork quilt in my life, waiting to be quilted. I may just try your approach on the white border. Thanks!

Karen said...

Never heard of the thread and will check it our further. I have some embroidery blocks that I have wondered how to quilt the piece. Your quilt turned out oh so nice!

Brenda said...

Congratulations on finishing this one. It is absolutely stunning! Nice work!

Nancy said...

What a lovely basket quilt. I also love to stitch and have a redwork basket quilt ready to go... I need to check on that thread. I also don't like to quilt through the redwork.
I just found your blog through another (can't remember which one)blog...
