Here is a customer quilt sent to me. Immediately upon seeing it I felt that the quilting needed perspective added to it. . .
. . . and here's the result. I treated the quilt as a window looking out into a courtyard.
An overhead decking was added for the pots to hang from.
A door and fountain added for the courtyard. I drew my design full size and then traced that onto Golden Threads paper. The suns in the border were also drawn on the paper. I spray baste the paper onto the quilt and sewed through it. Very easy to transfer design this way, although I do admit that it takes longer to pull off the paper than it does to sew. The Golden Threads paper is one of the easiest papers to pull off, however. I highly recommend it for this technique.
Until next time,
