Look Whoo's on my Wall

I finished this commission quilt last weekend and delivered it to the customer Monday just in time for a birthday party. Since my kids were invited to the party, it worked out great.


I used a variegated thread with black, green, orange and yellow for the tree and the ground.


A matching linen colored Isacord thread for the swirls.




The back



I used my machine binding technique to finish the binding from the front.


 The grid design I used for the ground was fun to do and gave a good dimensional quality to that area.


 Here it's on my bed by the window, trying to get some better light to show the quilting.



Fun swirls for the wind around this tree. I love how the asymmetrical design turned out.

 
Snuck in a little word for the little guy who will have this hanging in his room. GROW.


I had a hard tome taking clear pictures of this quilt. Not sure why. I'm linking this post with Anna Marie's Off the Wall Friday and Leah Day's Free Motion Friday Link-ups.

I love this kind of project! I was asked to make a tree wall quilt with the above colors, but the rest was up to me.  I love playing with free motion quilting! How about you?

  2. I love your free motion quilting! I am not good at it, so tend to do things with my walking foot (which I am good at!)

  3. Amy, it is wonderful! The combination of FMQ and appliqué is so effective, and the contrast between the FMQ backgrounds for the ground and sky works perfectly. Everyone who sees it will want one!
