Whole Cloth Hand Quilting
« on: November 04, 2013, 05:50:54 PM »
I am new to doing a whole cloth quilt top and this one was pre-printed.
Bought this one from Dreamer, it's a vintage.

Recently, ladybugtx found some on Amazon for around $50.00 or less. Nice too.

I am using a variegated thread  called London Drizzle...Egyptian cotton

It's a variety of colors called steel, fog, charcoal, drizzle, fun.....And it comes on a 3000 yd cone so you shouldn't run out.....

I did this much in abut two weeks. Over half way thru and closer to 3/4..... interupted by other projects but will be able to finish it soon.

Some have said they use printed backing so they don't see their stitches.....well, you can't hide the stitches on this one.

I will be doing more....

Love to see anyone else's Whole cloth quilts, I imagine there is some really advanced ones out there.

This is one that a man named Tim is doing on our FB group.....his work is amazing......he's supposed to come by and join soon.
Just to give you an idea of what one can do.....

The quilt is hanging over another one, the stripes do not go with his whole cloth quilt.

To get the red appearance of shadowing, he just outlines over nad over and fills in the spaces he wants.

I have to try this soon. Maybe even play with it on this one of mine.

I started on my whole cloth also, but have very little done -  I traced this one from a pattern that I bought - didn't do very good tracing it but it is for me... maybe... lol Not sure if you can see the stitches that I have done so far.

Debbie I love your's - that is very, very nice - and I saw the ones on Amazon and they are $30 cheaper than on Keepsake quilting.  I

Beautiful!  When I first started quilting 23 years ago, I didn't have an appreciation for wholecloth.  Seemed a bit boring to me.  But what did I know at only 18 years old???  Needless to say, over the years I've developed a much keener sense of appreciation for these amazing works.  Definitely on my bucket list although I had no idea you could find them on Amazon.

Wow!  Tim's is beautiful as is yours and Bones.

I think this is what I will end up liking to do.  I like filling in with the stitches in swirly patterns and the stitching itself.

I am so impressed with you ladies and gentleman.

Thanks for those links, Craftiladi, that is interesting. 

I am working on a tiny bit of a whole cloth now for my niece.  I was trying to figure out how to get the real full look of trapunto on the animals and the easiest thing I came up with is laying a piece of batting under the animal with a muslin piece behind the whole picture.  I have stitched around the animal and then cut away the rest of the batting.  When I've finished all of the animals I will put another whole piece of batting and the backing fabric on and quilt the whole of the picture.  There's probably an easier way but this is working for now.  Her birthday is Saturday so I've got to get it done! :D

The picture was printed crooked which drives me wild!  That is one good thing about real whole cloth quilts is that you lay down the pattern.

That is going to be awesome - you can do trapunto anyway that is comfortable for - don't worry about it - there is no right or wrong way of doing things -

When I get done with the few things that I have to piece (well, I think there are 5 or maybe even 8 I need to piece first, lol) - I really think I'm going to concentrate on just whole cloths - I like the quilting part more than anything else.

Do you have pictures of your whole cloth ones?  I know this is a hand quilt section but I'm sure we'd all like to see them.

Your work is beautiful!  I love the wholecloths and someday I'll do one.  I did a small one and I think I made a doll quilt out of it and gave it away.  I think.... Hmmmm....yup, thats what happened to it.  I'm thinking about buying one of Holice's preprinted wholecloths to use a spread and then use a bed runner on the bottom with a few pillows that pull out some colors from the runner.  I'm not sure I can do it by hand though....you amaze me with your hand work!

I think the trapunto looks is awesome......pulled a picture back with me when I went to look.

One time I use a lofty batting and it automatically looked like Trapunto...

Me neither since I don't do an awful lot on internet.....well maybe.
But you google is and up it comes. This is how we found them for Ladybugtx....
Hope you get incentive from these posts to get one started.  I always have something that is on a rack ready to give me a break from my normal quilting.

Those who read my journal, know I can sit 8-10 hours a day quilting if I have a good audio book or series on the tv.

Mostly Warm and Natural....this one I used the rest of some bamboo batting Beenana sent me and obviously got me hooked on. I like that there is no beading and easy to stitch.

Hmm trying to see if my variegated thread colors show up but barely. And it's not like it is so obvious but I was trying to get a "shaded " effect.....

Maybe he can start a whole cloth machine quilting thread on the board.
Nothing again machine quilting, I love it but this is hand quilting......
We finally have our own section for it too....thank you Andii.......
So glad you jumped on the band wagon and got it done for us.....Thank you Admin too....

Your WC is lovely and always enjoy see this project in the works.
Yes, bamboo is good but it will beard on black fabric.

I have been told that wool or silk is also wonderful. 
Not that you need to wool for warmth but has a wonderful "feel" the bamboo.

Have you tried wool or silk, BB or others?

Beenana, It didn't bead on my black because I read about it and tough noe very noticeable there is a shiney side to the bamboo. If the correct side is in the back of the fabric, it doesn't bead...I had to play with it a while to see....

I am so glad you introduced me to it...
