Beckie's French Braid
Finished at 95 x 105, this beauty completely covered my worktable and down the sides! My friend Beckie is making this quilt for her brother and fiance for their upcoming wedding. Wow! A labor of love! Beckie also finished pillow shams and a table runner for them in the same Shimmer fabrics. I saw them at lunch on Monday, gorgeous!
Quilting around the last corner and down the bottom border.
Quilted with Quilter's Dream Wool for that wonderful loft. Also a good choice for batting because it doesn't add allot of weight which is really nice for large quilts. Threads are both from Superior Threads, a Fantastico in a variegated gold for the top and SoFine#50 for the back. Just realized I forgot to take a pic of the backing! It's one of the medium gold fabrics used in the braid, really pretty. Beckie picked up her quilt last night. Kind of sad, letting it go! My frame looks so empty right now!
The variegated Fantastico worked great on the lights
as well as the dark fabrics and blended with the mediums...
adding nice highlights to the gold in the Shimmer fabrics!
Quilting design is a set by Nancy Haacke at Wasatch Quilting.
Well designed and it stitched out perfectly!
Gorgeous quilt Beckie, I would not accomplish this detailed of quilting
without your perfect piecing! Thank you xoxoxoxox
Tot ziens, Jo
