Finished Quilting Urban Chained and YES on SID!

Just finished quilting Urban Chained.  This is Connie's quilt and she's heading out of town soon, so I'm glad I was able to get it done for her!



This is the 3rd Urban Chained quilt I've quilted but the first I've done custom on and I like how it turned out!

 I behaved and used "1" layer of Hobbs batting!  It was tough to make that decision though....since I'm addicted to using 2 layers of batting.

I did end up going back to SID, thanks to your advice...and I do love how it really finished it off and made the curves stand out even more.  I usually always SID on custom quilts and am not sure why I thought I may not on this one????

Silly girl...how could you even think you could get away with not doing SID! ;P
Love the ribbon candy style design in the curves!!

It's fabulous....I avoid SID as much as possible, being fairly lazy, but I must admit it seems to make a difference, darn it all.

I always love your work, and wish I could afford to have someone (YOU) quilt something for me! You are an amazing talent!

love the quilting and the stitch-in-the-ditch around the curves makes a BIG difference! Love it!

Your quilting is exquisite! Do you actually just quilt this without a programmed pattern on your longarm? It's amazing, and I have my ruler. Hope I can start a quilt soon..love your blog, and the lovely things you create!
