Kitchen Sink Quilted


 I've finished my Kitchen Sink quilt, well almost, here it is all quilted and ready for me to put on the binding. I just love this quilt and the quilting has really made it sparkle. I'm not very good at quilting, but with this shop offering their long-arm quilting machine for rental by the hour, it's been fun to learn. I'm starting to really enjoy using the long-arm now that I can remember "most" of the steps.
Close up of the quilting.
Another close up picture of the back. I'm just so excited at how good it looks.
My BunnyHill Redwork quilt is almost finished too, I have plans to add a pieced border, we'll see how that works since I didn't use a pattern and I still need to figure out the math to add the border.
A little closer view.

Happy Quilting and Stitching, until next time.

The quilting (and the quilt) look fantastic! I'd love to have access to a long arm quilter...sure would make life easier!

Kim said...

Excellent quilting for Kitchen Sink. A nice idea to rent time on a long arm. Red Work basket quilt is stunning. Will check back to see how you do the border.

Janet said...

The quilting turned out wonderful!! That is so cool that you can rent a long arm machine by the hour. I'm just curious - how many hours did it take? Your bunny hill quilt is very pretty - I like the setting squares.

Darlene said...

Look at your adorable Tisket-a-Tasket blocks. Love your setting; perfect.

That's fantastic that you are able to use a longarm yourself and the quilting looks very professional. It is a lovely quilt. I like your setting of the redwork too. Can't wait to see the border.

Your Kitchen sink came out wonderful! I didn't know some shops were starting to rent out time on long arm machine. That might well be worth looking into. You did a great job on the quilting! Bunny Hill red work is awesome! :0)

Oh Wendy, your setting for your Buuny Hill is fabulous! That is a showcase quilt for sure. You outdid yourself. Will you also quilt this one yourself?

The stitchery setting looks terrific and I can't wait to see it with a border.

I am sending hugs and hopes! My house is a 200yr old stone schoolhouse in Northern Britain, when we added an extension we discovered the outside walls were not connected to the inside walls and the beams holding upstairs up were rotted!!! Hide in the sewing room it will save your sanity and the work will get done all the sooner!! Our buildres were fantastic, they used to send me out if they needed to swear! sometimes I was gone for a whole day!!

Sinta Renee said...

I absolutely love what you did with the Bunny Hill redwork! It is beautifulllll!

That quilt (Kitchen sink) is really looking great! One of the most beautiful srap quilts I've seen! I would really love to make one like this, I'm working on Charity quilts and I've got a lot of different fabrics that would just be great in a quilt like this! Is it your own pattern/design, or did you buy it?
The quilting on it looks so good too :o)
Have a nice day,
Laila
