I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was working on a quilt that was a major SID project. I have waited for Mayleen to finish the binding and post about the quilt on her blog first before showing it here. You might want to check out her blog to find out more about this quilt and some of Mayleen's other wonderful quilts.
This is a reproduction of an antique quilt patterned by Di Ford and it is complicated enough to scare off all but the most courageous quilt makers. Mayleen loves complicated so this is right up her alley.
She does such an amazing job on the fine details in the applique and embroidery.
I know she made a few additions of her own like the dog and the cat. She chose the perfect fabric for that little cat.
I love the tiny apples on the tree.
Lots of embroidered details.
Mayleen wanted this quilted very traditionally, with echo quilting, feathers and NO STIPPLE. I felt this quilt deserved careful stitch in the ditch around all the applique and
I used 100 w silk for the background quilting with Bottom Line in the bobbin and Hobb's wool as the batting.
This is Mayleen's masterpiece and was a joy to quilt, despite all that pesky SID!
