This is Jan Z. and her amazing quilt. It is beautifully appliqued and embroidered with so many little details! She says it is a Piecemakers pattern from 2003 that she has been working on for a long time.
She embroidered around each applique piece with black floss.
My goal in quilting was to stay out of the way of all her work while highlighting it with stitch in the ditch - a LOT of stitch in the ditch. I used Invisifil and Bottom Line thread for almost the whole thing. Invisifil is great for stitching around applique; it is so extremely fine and comes in colors, unlike monofilament.
I saw a quilt made with this pattern once at a show, it was breathtaking. So is this one! The quilting is perfect.ReplyDelete
Wow, this is gorgeous! I can't believe all the work that went into the applique: Applique, Embroider, and then SITD. It looks amazing!ReplyDelete

Beautiful. My friend Pat made the same quilt in 2011. http://blarma2001.blogspot.com/2011/09/embroidery.html I blogged about it so I have a picture. Just had to share. It was fun watching her progress along through the year.ReplyDelete
Both of the quilts are amazing. I can't imagine spending so much time on one quilt, but I surely appreciate when others can do it. Thanks for sharing your friend's also. Bonnnie in CalifDelete
Ooh, thank you for sharing this spectacular quilt! I love how the Log Cabin blocks and fabric choices create "frames" for the appliqued scenes, and the level of detail is just phenomenal. You both did a great job on this one!ReplyDelete
Wow!!! THat *is* an amazing quilt. She did a stunning amount of work, and your quilting enhances it so much. What a nice find on my lunch break. :)ReplyDelete
I love your quilt! I have not seen the pattern before and it is quite charming, made even more charming by your personal touches.ReplyDelete
So glad she took her time on this one...it shows in every scene. And your quilting! Just the right amount and shapes needed to enhance the quilt. How satisfying this must have been for both of you. Blessings! -ElaineReplyDelete
