Anniversary Quilt

Sharon Perry
The candlewick embroidery of this quilt was done over a period of about 15 years. It was assembled and quilt to exhibit at our local guild exhibition.
The quilting was going to be simple - just cross-hatching.
Simple it may have been - but little did I realise just how long it would take. Three whole days at the machine! This was where my great numbers of cross-hatching patterns started - and they have just progressed from there.
The quilt won the prize for 'Excellence in Longarm Machine quilting' at Wellington Quilters Guild 2007 exhibition, and then went on to win 3rd place Traditional in the World Quilt Competition (2009). I was very pleased that I had spent all that time 'simply' quilting the quilt!

The cross-hatching squares and rectangles used were various, with the trim function being well and truly put to work.
