A Feast for the Eyes!

I just can't get over the machine quilting in these quilts - it's like a work of art all on its own.

Memories in the Stars
pieced by Marita Wolf
quilted by Diane Wingo

Rose's Red Roses
pieced and quilted by Kathy Parker

Cache of Carats

pieced by Gail Stepanek
quilted by Jan Hutchison

The entire quilt top consists of hand pieced 1/2 inch English paper pieced diamonds.  Jan quilted a different design for each block.

The piecing and the quilting in this quilt are amazing!  The photos do not do it justice.

See what I mean?  Are you having to pick your jaw up off the floor yet?

Magenta Magic
pieced by Janet Knapp
quilted by Judi Madsen

It was quilted with Kimono silk thread and two layers of batting - Hobbs 80/20 and a blend of cotton and wool.

Hmmm.... I just pinned Jane with a thin batting because all of the piecing makes the quilt so heavy already, but most of these nicely machine quilted quilts have two battings!  Now I'm not sure what to do....

The Big Bang
pieced by Kathie Beltz
quilted by Mara Novak

(quilted on a longarm)

Look at all the secondary designs the quilting creates!

Let's Do the Dresden Twist
pieced and quilted by Teri Cherne

Again - two battings - Hobbs 80/20 and Polydown

Well I am going to work on quilting a baby quilt today while I re-think the batting in Dear Jane.  That would be a lot of work to un-pin and re-pin....
