It’s all about the texture

img_0120-e1327060773405For me, quilting is all about the texture that the quilting process adds to the quilt top.  It is not a quilt until it is quilted.  The quilting adds another layer of design to the quilt.  I finally finished binding the “Card Tricks” quilt.  After washing and drying the quilt, it has a beautiful texture.  Compare the picture below to the one in my previous post.   I still need to add the hanging sleeve and the label and I will be ready to hang in my mom’s apartment.   My embroidery unit decided to stop talking to the sewing machine, so off to my dealer I went.  I’ll have to wait to finish the label.
