Row by Row & Hunter’s Star

These are Susan’s other two quilts.

We also used two layers of batting in these. 1 is a table topper…the other is a wall-hanging. If I lay down a lot of thread and use two layers of batting the quilts will be a bit stiffer. Depending on how much thread you use….it may remain stiff. If you don’t lay down a lot of thread it will still soften after a washing and drape…if they are to be used on the wall or as a table topper….stiff is fine. 🙂

 

Just thought I would explain that for inquiring minds.

Some people think it’s just a matter of how much quilting you do to make it stiff. That’s not true. Batting has a lot to do with it. I have a quilt that I have quilted to death…it has one layer of batting and it drapes just fine. If I had put an extra layer of batting it might stand on it’s own.

So getting to the quilts. This first one is the Row by Row: Cute sunflowers, barns, houses, fences ect. I just embellished each area suitable to what it is….ass leaves… L’s and E’s to finish it off.     IMG_6166 IMG_6167 IMG_6168

Pretty right? It was really fun to work on…each roll was something new.

 

The next one is a Hunter’s Star.IMG_6171

 

I was trying to remember if I have actually quilted one of these before….I have always loved this pattern…it’s always striking. Susan of course did a wonderful job. 🙂
