LongArm Quilting

This patchwork was the second commission from a client it was to be a Christmas Present.
The client provided the top which  measured 77″ x 83″, backing and binding fabric.  ATQ provided 100% bamboo wadding. As it was a Japanese theme ourselves and the client decided on the Blossom Cluster E2E pattern which  to fit the theme of the quilt.Backing fabric provided by customer – to enable the pattern on the backing fabric to be directional in accrodance with instructions fabric was cut and sewn togther by ATQ using Aurifil 40wt 2610 Light Blue Grey.

The  HQ Avante LongArm machine was used to quilt the design with  Aurifil thread forty/3wt 2610 Silver Moon.  This Aurifil thread was used for the quilt pattern on the front and back of the quilt.  The backing fabric was a Lynnette Anderson fabric and because the quilt was muted colours of greys and purples the Aurifil thread blended in fantastically and didn’t detract from the pattern on the top but just made the design stand out enough on the back..  For stitching of the binding Aurifil 40wt 2460 Carmine Red 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 92 hours 12 mins and 38 secs.

In total there were  243,579  stitches at 15 stitches per inch for the Blossom Cluster E2E design, which used approximately 905 meters of thread.

The client was over the moon with how the quilt turned out.
Thank you Prof. for letting me work on your quilt.
