Machine Quilting: Double Take

My Nana made one of these quilts and helped to make the other. The lighter one is for her Pastor's sister as a wedding present and the Pastor's kids helped make the top! The darker quilt is a present for the mother of the bride, how neat is that?!
 I think this will make a wonderful wedding present!
 Nana wanted the two quilts quilted differently, so on the first I did these viney swirls. I love doing this design and it looks so elegant, so that's what I call it - Elegant.
 The next quilt was done in blues and tans and I love the way it looks. I quilted this one sideways since it was easier with the backing she chose.
 I'm not sure if you can see it here, but Nana LOVES variegated threads so this thread is a variety of blues. It looked really sharp in the quilting. The first quilt was quilted with a variegated tan thread.
 The fireside backing (from Moda, love this stuff!) really shows off the quilting! These are free motion peacock feathers.
This quilt looks so striking, I think she did a great job on it. Thanks, Nana!


  1. Both quilts are beautiful. Both the piecing and the quilting are so appropriate. They are both going to love them. Beautiful work.

  2. Out of this world beautiful! Outstanding job and gifts.

    Thanks for sharing.
