Autumn Race: A Finished Quilt
This is Autumn Race which is starting to look more and more like a Christmas Race due to the colors. It is the second quilt I quilted on the new Bernina Q24.
It is another stash busting Chunky Race Quilt made with 26.5 six inch by width of fabric strips. There are sixteen rows and each row was quilted with a different feather/vine design. The designs were either from Feather Boot Camp or Christina Cameli's book First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting.
It was so much fun quilting this on the Q24. The stitches looked really nice and I didn't break the thread once while quilting no matter what direction I was stitching.
I quilted it in a golden brown Aurifil thread which looks very golden on the fabric.
I love how it lets the feathers shine.
I will be keeping this quilt because I love the leafy inspiration fabric and the quilting. I already have two table runners made with the same leaf fabric.
The leaf fabric is also sewn into the back separating two different dark greens.
One of those greens became the binding.
I love how it turned out.
