Diamond Wedding Star Quilt

This stunning quilt top was made by Linda Whitford of YK. It's a Quiltworx pattern called Diamond Wedding Star. Isn't it beautiful? To be honest, I was a little intimidated by all of the wide open space, but very excited too! Here is the quilt fully quilted. It's 97" square.

The threads I used were Glide 60wt Linen for the background, Coral for the center stars, and Satin for the black spikey areas. MagnaGlide in the bobbin. I used one layer of Tuscany Wool over one layer Hobbs 80/20. This took 25 hours to quilt, including design and marking time.

This was quilted entirely hand guided on our Gammill Vision2 using Coast Regulate 14/10 for the ruler work, and Constant 30-35 for the feather work.
