You may remember this challenging project that I have been working on, and I am glad to say that it is almost finished. This has been a pull your hair out joyful and rewarding project to work on. I posted my recreation plan here if you are interested.
This DWR quilt came to me in pieces, and seeing it all together makes me very pleased. Here is how I quilted this one.
Some of the blocks had some extra fullness that I needed to contain with my quilting. I chose a meandering feather and Cathedral Windows. Both of these worked well to handle the fullness.
I did SID in all the curved shapes, and at the intersection of the rings I did a simple continuous curve design.
In the blocks I alternated between the meandering feather and the Cathedral Windows.

I am so very satisfied that I was able to restore and salvage this family treasure, it was worth every painstaking stitch and frustration. There is such a history, and a connection to the other quilter that I felt while working on this piece. I am honored that I was a part of this project. Now all that is left is the binding around all those curves.
Thanks for joining me through this challenge, I appreciate the company and support.
