.....I made this.....A triptych called
"Nummers One, Two and Three"
I plan on hanging all three in a group on my living room wall.
|"Nummer Two" measures 26" x 28" spiral quilted using walking foot. Quilted on my Pfaff QE 4.0 using Aurifil 50# in white 2024 top and bottom and a Superior Titanium Topstitch needle size 80/12|
|spiral quilting is such fun!|
|"Nummer Three" measures 18" x 26" freemotioned quilted. Had to add the selvedge! Quilted on my Pfaff GrandQuilter 16.0 using Aurifil #50wt in white 2024|
On "Nummer Three", I tried my hand at using an acrylic quilting ruler. I used "Fine Line" Quilter's Ruler made by Accents in Design, Inc. I like having the ruler to guide my stitching and it works well once you get the feel for it. I found that going right to left is better for me. You will notice in the photo below that the left hand side of the arcs are quite wobbly. I find it a lot easier and smoother if I stitch right to left. Lots of practice required.
Backing fabric on all three is another Ikea fabric.
For the binding, the same on all three...My favourite from "Handcrafted" by Alison Glass A lovely dark teal. I bound #One and #Two completely by machine but on #Three, I handstitched it to the back.
I love fabric so much, but it's the scraps, the leftovers, that really inspire me and spur me on just to see if I can make my mind come to life!
