Grandmother's Flower Pots Finished

My Flower Pots quilt is finished!

I struggled with a basket weave type design, and finally settled on this.


and After.

I love this shot while the quilt is still on the longarm.  Most of the pictures in this post are taken during the quilting process, while on the frame.   The lighting and all just works better there.

Nothing on this quilt went quickly.  There was Stitch in the Ditch everywhere, but it was so necessary to give definition to the piecing, and the quilting. 

I stitched my binding on with the longarm.
To sum things up, this was not my first nor my last hexie project.  I used wool batting, Glide thread on the top with Sew Fine in the bobbin. This quilt measures 81" x 104".  It is always so satisfying and rewarding finishing up a big project, and I am so happy this one is finished.  Woo Hoo!

Thanks for looking, I do appreciate it.



  1. Esther that looks amazing. You are spot on with your quilting to suit the piecing.

    Cant wait to get stitching on my Innova.



  2. Just gorgeous! Your quilting designs make the quilt!

  3. WOW!!! Esther your Flower Pots quilt is stunning! LOVE everything you did, it's perfect! The texture on the pots, the triangles are gorgeous!, the details on the flowers and the cross hatch, everything down to every inch of the SID! Well done!!! Oh yea, and the quilt is gorgeous too! This baby has got to be in the show! Yes!?! Plus sewing the binding on with the longarm! I am sew impressed :0) Isn't the wool batting wonderful. Woo Hoo

  4. Awesome quilt and quiting. Beautiful work and designs.

  5. Beautiful quilt and quilting Esther! I really love your quilt designs. Was this the quilt that had something sewn in reverse? I can't remember exactly what without going back to your older posts, but if this is the quilt, I certainly don't see it....all I see is gorgeous!

  6. Wow, this turned out beautiful. Love your quilting!

  7. Esther this is BEAUTIFUL! You have created another gorgeous heirloom!
    I love those swaggy corners!

  8. This just makes me smile. I could study the quilting for hours--wish I could learn by osmosis!

  9. Beautiful ! - the quilting suits it so well:)

  10. What amazing quilting!!! It is a beautiful quilt. I love the idea of putting the binding on with the long arm. Any tricks to pass on? Hope your summer was a great one.

  11. Love wool batting. Your quilting is amazing.

  12. Late in posting (though I did before!) but it is beautiful with fun fabrics. Do you do you SID on the longarm? Is that difficult?

  13. I love the feathers and curved cross hatching. I hope to be able to do this soon.

  14. Love your quilts, colors you use, and quilting techniques! How long have you been quilting?
