LongArm Quilting

We collected this (patch) work of art from a client, it was to be a present for her Mum.
She provided the top, backing and wadding. I was asked to provide a fabric for the binding and he fabric I chose was Spectrum Light Mauve. It was quilted with Heart in Heart pattern on the HQ Avante LongArm machine. Aurifil thread forty/3wt French Lilac was used for the quilt pattern on the quilt top and for the backing Aurifil 40/3wt Dusty Lavender.  The client didn’t want the pattern to stand out too much so both colours blended in really well with the fabric.  For stitching of the binding Aurifil 40wt French Lilac was used.
A new needle is used for every quilt and for this quilt I used 1 Groz-Beckert 10Nm 100/16 needle

The total time taken on this was 76 hours 12 mins.

In total there were  112,875  stitches at 15 stitches per inch for the Heart in Heart pattern, which used approximately 1393 meters of thread.

The client was over the moon with her quilt and has commissioned me to do a second one.
Thank you so much M. for letting me work on the quilt for your Mum.  May she get a lot of pleasure out of it.
