Wholecloth Quilt – join my journey

Having finished 2 UFO’s this year and completing an Australian quilt for my youngest daughter, I decided I would like to make a wholecloth quilt. Being a machine quilter this is one of my greatest passions.

I selected some beautiful shot cotton from my stash, this fabric was given to me by my friend Phil Thomas several years ago and I love it. The photograph below does not do it justice. First of all I had to mark the quilt.

I have chosen to use a repeating medallion design which I drew up myself last year with a view to making a wholecloth quilt.

You will see 2 different designs in the medallion and each will be used separately in the quilt. My goal for today was to mark and baste the quilt which I managed. My next goal is to select thread and quilt the major lines. More to follow in a few days.

    • Thanks Meg, selecting thread today, I think I will put glide through the needle and may use it in the bobbin. Not sure how machine will handle that as I usually use So Fine in the bobbin
