I'm seeing swirls!
....actually, I feel like I'm flying in an airplane and starring out the window when looking at this picture.
When doing up this quilt, I wanted to bring out the fantastic design it makes but I feel I lost it with the fabrics and colors I used. I really wasn't going for the circular design created but with my swirls that's exactly what happened. Funny how that happened!
I used double batting, warm and white with Tuscany Hobbs Wool on the top. Many have asked me why I use double batting....and this is why: I'VE COME TO THE REALIZATION I HAVE AN ADDICTION TO IT. Seriously, it's not a fun addiction to have. It makes your quilts more expensive to bat and also makes them heavier (found that out when I had to spend extra money in luggage because they were over the weight limit)!! I told myself I wasn't going to do it anymore...but so far I haven't been able to!! So there you have it, you know one of my addictions.
I thought it would be fun to use an orange with red polka dot fabric for the binding. I love the flare it gave this quilt!
This quilt is called Urban Winter and a pattern will be available soon.
This is so gorgeous Jenny! It's everything I wish I could have done on my modern peel quilt.
It turned out beautiful. I just love the swirl quilting!
I love your circles. I can't quilt them very well without using rulers.
fantastic as usual
ooooolllaaaaaaaaaaaaaalalaaaaaaaaa xoxox love this
Well, you may be addicted to double batting, but I am addicted to looking at your quilts and quilting!! Love it!
Amazing. I love the double batting. So you did these swirls freehand? They are perfect. Can't imagine doing them. You're awesome and I also love the pattern.
Amazing work! Very nice!
Stunning. The perfect quilting for it.
Thought I was going yo have to take a Dramamine! Those circles really make that quilt sing!
Beautiful! I am becoming addicted to double batting, too. I tried it on a small quilt once and loved the way it felt and how the quilting looked so I have continued to do this for several quilts on my home machine. I have not tried it yet on a large quilt on the long arm that I rent sometimes in the LQS. I have been thinking about it, though. I live in New England so thicker warmer quilts in the winter are a good thing ... :) Pat
the swirls are perfect. I cant believe you freehanded them though :-)
Stunning!! Gosh I make little swirls on my domestic machine; and they have flat sides...lol
this is gorgeous,well done.xx
Love, Love, Love the swirls!!! So fun!!!
I love it! I guess you 'addiction' adds extra texture too. I have never had a customer ask for two layers of batting & I have never tried.
Wonderful design and quilting. Do you have a secret how even and nice the quilting is done?
I'm not generally so big on modern quilts, but this one is so stunning I have to tell you so! I love it! ~Lynda
this is stunning.
Jenny, this is wonderful! Did you do this on a domestic?
Outstanding. I thought of the swirls on top of a cone from Dairy Queen.
Wow and WOW! Absolutely stunning.
That is gorgeous! I've never tried double batting, is it just to make the quilting stand out more? I do want to try wool batting, though - I've been so cold lately that cotton isn't cutting it.
This is so stunning and inspiring!! WOW!
It's really fabulous....I love those swirls.
it's mesmerizing! LOVE IT!
Beautiful! Is that a computerized circular swirl?
Gorgeous Jenny!!!! As always, your vision is genius. Seriously. The quilting just makes the design look so cool!!! LOVE!!! I have a double batt addiction too!!!! Last several quilts I have done, I have double batted. Wow, makes a huge difference in enhancing the texture of the quilting. I weighed a large client quilt when I was done quilting and it was 12 pounds!!! LOL!!!!
Beautiful! I have some antique quilts that are HEAVY! I asked the ladies at my LQS how I could get that same weight, and they told me to use double batting. I haven't tried it yet because I'm not sure I'd be able to get it through my machine. I should try a little sample piece one of these days. Your quilt looks amazing!
Wow, Jenny, my eyes are goin' round, round, round. But it's absolutely fantastic. Love it. Are the coral/red fabs from a certain line?
This is just stunning. I love it!
I adore the look of double batting and have used it on a crib size quilt (used wool in both layers) with very little stitching. It shrank a lot. Do densely quilted quilts with wool in them shrink less? Do you see any variances after washing when you use two different types of batting.
I am quit often disappointed with the end result of single batting. Perhaps I need to do some serious experiments.
I also wonder how judges of quilt competitions feel about adding another layer to a "quilt".
A truly beautiful quilt. Congratulations!
Again - I LOVE your quilting!
Oh my gosh, this is absolutely gorgeous!
Love this quilt and the quilting looks amazing! So "easy" but so classy!
I love using double batting, makes the quilting pop so lovely! I don't generally do it as it would get to expensive but for important stuff when I have enough batting at home I do =D
I love it! I remember when you were piecing it together :). It is my new favorite!
Fabulous! Love the color. Love the circles!
What wonderful texture. That quilting is the perfect choice for the patchwork
