Quilting and finishing tips

  • Layer and baste the backing, batting and quilt top.
  • The quilt pictured was quilted with a continuous swirling feather motif in all cream areas and various serpentine shapes in the green tree blocks, black star points and red tone-on-tone squares. The quilter also quilted a square grid in the red floral squares and added clamshell quilting on the black roofs with back-and-forth stitches on the red chimneys. The quilt was finished with repeating loops on the red border and features on the green/red border.
  • Bind the quilt.
