Quilting

A friend asked about my style of quilting - I use a machine with a 9 inch throat (gap between needle and body of machine).  It is mounted on a Happy Jack frame  - which is one of the simpler frames available with the use of rollers it is possible to move the machine side to side and backweards and forwards.

I generally do free motion patterns which I do not mark on the quilt first.

The "quilted leaves" quilt has the a rambling vive quilted through the large black boarder.

The back of the quilt ( white) below shows an overall hearts design.

The duck panel quilt was quilted along the lines of the picture to make the design stand out.
Lucy 100 blessing quilt is quilted with hearts on the coloured areas and words  on the white - readable in original but hard to photograph
