moving the mountain with a teaspoon


I'm using four strands of Sulky 12wt cotton through all these layers of muslin, damask and silk. It goes so smoothly with no fussing or jumping into knots I know I'm going to have a hard time finding the stopping place even though this piece is something like 40"x65".

My intention is to build this piece as if it were to be used as bedding so the quilting layer has to look as good on the back as it does on the front (but don't call the quilt police just yet) .



And once again, while I was in the studio looking for something else, I unearthed this one which is waiting it's turn for the same treatment...

so there is no batting, but just the 3 layers of cloth you've mentioned? I love that!

Correct but in some place the elements overlap so it goes to 4 or 5 layers but such co-operative fabrics.

Please excuse my ignorance - this is probably a silly question but are you hand or machine quilting? What type needle are you using, either way?
