Tea Time on High Street: Quilting in Progress

Here’s a sneak peek at the quilting on my latest quilt, Tea Time on High Street. After seeing a photo of a quilt Karlee at SewInspired2Day quilted with the motif “Soho” by Urban Elementz, I asked her to use it on my quilt, with what I think are spectacular results:

Karlee posted this shot on her Instagram account this afternoon and I nearly swooned! The lines on my quilt are so angular that I wanted something with loops, and this pattern is just what I was looking for: modern and a little edgy, with the added bonus of being a design with uniform spacing that would tame the bias edges on all those blocks.

My quilt will be ready to pick up tomorrow. I can hardly wait to see it! You can be sure I will be posting more photos as soon as the quilt is back in my possession. I’m thinking it needs to be bound in the same tiny dotted print I used in that half-inch contrast border. Yes?

    I agree. That fabric for the binding would be excellent. The quilting is beautiful.

    At each step, this quilt just gets better and better. I like your thought about the binding choice.

    I like that machine quilting pattern a lot, too! And yes to your choice for the binding, it will frame the quilt so nicely, can’t wait to see it all done! Suzette

    How is it possible that at every turn this quilt gets cuter and cuter? Just when I thought the borders you chose took the design right across the finish line, now the quilting motif provides yet another spectacular finish. But wait! The binding is still yet to come. Gosh, if you go back to the beginning, I don’t see how anyone could have foreseen this amazing outcome! SO well done, Nubs!
