Lila's Orange Quilt

Did you know I can baste your quilt? 
The basting stitch below is 1 inch stitch. 
My longarm will baste as little as a 1/4", 1/2", 3/4" up to a 1 inch stitch.
I suggest 1/2 inch.it is easy to pull out and at the same time your fingers do not get caught up in the thread.  

This quilt is for Lila Rostenburg, she is an amazing quilter. 
Below is a bag that she made and it holds her quilt.

This Cardinal Wall hanging she made for a friend of mine. I love it.
.
Lila wanted me to quilt in the solid areas and baste in the pieced areas of this quilt. 
In the pieced areas I put in a 1 inch basting stitch so Lila can Big Stitch her quilt.

Thread - Mustard by Signature
Batting - Cotton supplied by Lila
Tools - Straight Edge Quilting Ruler

Many lines were requested and lines in all different directions
Some are Curved on the corners
I love how the line look as they change direction

The picture below shows curved edges and straight turned edges

So lets take a look at how easy those curved corners can be made. Below you can see that I did not use a special curved ruler. I just slowly worked my way around the corner of a regular straight edge ruler. 

When I went out to take pictures of this quilt the sun was setting and the shadows of the trees were all around. Beautiful but very difficult to properly see the quilt. 






Above is the Back

Thank you, Lila
