Aviatrix Medallion

9.01.2015


 After almost a year and a half in the waiting to be quilted pile, I got the Aviatrix Medallion basted and quilted a couple of weeks ago.


The back view. =) 


I used wool batting because I love it. However, I should have paid more attention. When quilting in a circle, the fabric does shift a bit. Because the wool has a higher loft than the cotton, it shifted a bit more than I have been used to. I adjusted the fabric from the front but didn't think about the back, so I ended up with a few puckers. I refuse to cry over it. 



Even with the flaws, I love his quilt. =) 
You can find the Aviatrix Medallion pattern at Elizabeth Hartman's shop



Have a happy Tuesday!!

  1. I LOVE this quilt with the grey background and the colors you chose. I also LOVE how you quilted this - it especially centers the star in the middel - the 'star' of the show/quilt :)! Those puckers - only the quilter sees - the rest just wrap themselves into this beautiful quilt - honestly - that's what my daughter says - and you know, she's right :)!!

  6. And rightly so, this quilt is gorgeous! I'm trying to come to terms with the fact that I'm not perfect, still very much learning, and quilts are handmade.....that results in character. Don't cry at all over a few puckers-it's spectacular! Now to remind myself of these things. 😊

  7. Lovely quilt. I had that problem a couple of weeks ago on a small piece and I kept tearing the quilting out. Finally said what the heck and just went for it. Your quilts are always so gorgeous.

  8. That is a beautiful quilt, I love the fabrics and the pattern. I am sure that it is hard to let puckers go and not think about them but I am sure that you will not even remember them as you enjoy this lovely quilt.

  12. It's a beautiful quilt, Amy, we wouldn't have spotted the puckers if you hadn't shown us and it really doesn't alter how gorgeous your work is. Wish I had the guts to try spiral quilting; it's so dramatic :)
