Candlewicking Quilt is Done!
All finished...this beautiful embroidered quilt with Debbie L's candlewicking blocks. I quilted and finished it for her. I am so pleased with the sculptured look of the quilt!
I started off being very timid about quilting inside the embroidered areas, but then I saw how the background quilting made them pop. After that I plunged right in had fun coming up with a different design for each embroidered square.
All of the sashings are a leafy vine. The backing and binding fabrics are the same paisley print.
I must say, the backing looks about 1000% better than the pre-quilted backing that the top had been attached to before. It looks pretty enough to stand on its own.
I am excited that my family is coming to my house this weekend for a family Christmas dinner. We all have grown kids and most have grandkids, and it is too hard to expect everyone to travel on Christmas Day. Charlie and I have been bustling around for the past two weeks getting ready. I will have some pictures to show on Monday, I am sure!
