I was honored to be able to work on this gorgeous Bali Wedding Star quilt. The piecing pattern is a design by Judy Niemeyer, all done in beautiful batik fabrics. The pictures just don't do it justice- those batiks are so vibrant & beautiful. All that amazing paper-piecing must have taken hours & hours!
The quilt was 104" square, so I didn't have a way to get a picture of the full quilt. But here is a good size section of it.
This quilt is done with all hand-guided patterns. The Intelliquilter was not used at all for this one. Each of the little squares in the arcs are quilted with a continuous curve pattern, and the stars have a large arc pattern in those areas. The feathers are a hand-guided pattern, to fill in the light areas between the darker batiks.
For the feathers I used a finer thread, called "So Fine" by Superior Threads. Since there is a bit of back-tracking on the feathers, there is less thread build-up in those areas that have to be stitched over twice.
The edges of the quilt all follow the curved piecing, and so there will be some interesting binding techniques going on. I am hoping to see if after she has the binding complete.
