Friday’s Finish: April 21

This is my finished Bonnie Hunter Mystery: Chilhowie. I used scraps of Island Batik to make this. Interestingly, I still have a LOT of scraps left!!!

Quilt Stats:

  • size: 78″ x 78″
  • fabrics: Island Batik scraps from many collections
  • batting: Hobbs 80/20
  • Quilted and Pieced with Aurifil thread #2600: Dove Grey
  • Wild Quilting: anything goes.

When you make a quilt as busy as this one, it’s a great quilt to do wild or graffiti quilting. It was a LOT of fun to quilt!!! I demonstrated wild quilting at a guild function … it was fun to have different people tell me what to quilt next. And yes, I did have a page full of motifs that are appropriate for wild quilting!

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  2. Awesome finish, Gail!!! I know how much work BH’s mystery quilts are, as I just finished mine. Neat that you could demo wild quilting with your guild! Do you have a longarm at the guild, or did they meet at your home, or ?

    • Hi Nancy,
      I do all my quilting on a domestic machine. I had already quilted a good portion of the centre of the quilt at home, so at the guild sew day, I mostly quilted around that towards the sides and had people tell me what to quilt next. Such fun! 🙂
