Stars in Her Crown : Victoria's royal Childern - a ten week quilt along

I recently had the honor of quilting this gorgeous quilt made by Dennielle Bohannon. You can find her on Facebook @Louanna Mary Quilt Design and Instagram @danniellebohannon.  The quilt is designed by Barbra Brackman and can be found here. The colors of this quilt are just amazing,  that deep purple, can you get any more royal than that?  The blocks were so creative and fun to quilt.  I added the touch of a crown in the last border.  This beauty will be hanging in Chicago at the Quilt Festival, stop by and take a peak!.

The quilt has two layers of batting, Hobbs Heirloom Blend and Hobbs Wool, glide thread on top, three different colors.  Thanks Dennielle for letting me quilt this beauty!

Tools of the trade, the usual suspects.  Glide Thread, Quilted Pineapple curved rulers, Quilters Rule  multiple curve ruler.  Margaret Soloman Gunn's book on Borders. There was a lot of point to point so very little marking required on this on.   In the border I marked a line down the center and mark the cross points on the way down.  Lots of feathers, lots of quilting, my favorite!

I've got so much more to share, a Bonnie Hunter quilt that is amazing, a mystery quilt that I have to wait to share and some more finishes for H2H 2019.  But I want each to have it's own day. And I have a king size monster of a custom quilt on the frame so I'm gonna need something for the next few weeks :)

Don't forget the International Quilt Festival in Chicago, I'll be there selling tickets for Country Quilters of McHenry Raffle quilt in the morning and white gloving in the afternoon.  Stop by and say Hi and grab some raffle tickets, the quilt is amazing !! I've got a quilt there, Old Friends and Dennielle has 2, this one and the one above, it's going to be a great show!!

  3. Fantastic quilting! Love getting to see it.

  4. I made both of Barabara's patterns shown here and you offer such inspiration on how to quilt them - although I am no way as talented as you.


I would love to hear from you, comments and questions welcome!
