Hell’s Kitchen: Quilting Finished

IT took a while, and there are a few mistakes, but damn it, it looks good! This is the quilt that was quilted with my embroidery machine. There are a few vertical lines quilted into it, because I really wanted to keep the vertical aspects of the buildings evident. I’m just so in love with it, but now I cannot find a binding I like. I might have to go and get some solid black. (Don’t ask why I’m out of it; I have clearly been slacking on my inventory.) Well, now that I get to see it when it is done, I love the way the embroidery motif looks! It took about 20 hours to quilt it, but you know, it was totally worth it! I can’t wait to finish it, so I can take pictures of it to enter in shows.

    When you embroider the quilting, do you readjust the tension of the machine to get a more balanced top and bottom stitch? Do you use matching threads?

      Yes, I did have to raise the tension. I did use matching thread. I used 60 weight, and did a triple stitch. That way it looks more like normal quilting, but is very secure.
