I just took this off the frame. What a beautiful quilt!!! I LOVE the embroidery and the color of this quilt. To summarize, I used a double batting (cotton bottom, Legacy Wool on top). I did this to create some extra loft behind the embroidery and I love how that makes the embroidery pop – almost like a 3d effect. I outlined all the embroidery and did the SID with clear Madeira Monolon on top and cream Bottom Line in the bobbin. I used tan light gold Superior Metallic, So Fine, off white Omni, and sage green Sew Fine on the top. The only time I switched the bobbin color was with the sage green. And the only reason I did that was because I was stitching through multiple layers of the green border applique. If not for that, I might have tried keeping the cream in the bobbin.
Designs I used were switchback feathers in the outer border, crosshatching in the red background fabric, pebbles and feather background fills with an on-point square dividing the fills within the blocks, feather plumes in the outer green border and a feather stencil I made along with outline stitching on the green applique border around the medallion. I love it. It would make a nice quilt to display this Christmas season.
